Statement of Work

  • Enhancements to the existing GTNetS BGP models to support the anycasting routing method.
  • Creation of simulation models of BGP anycast clouds of at least 500 nodes.
  • Measurement-based workload models for DNS applications using data collected by OARC.
  • Modification of DNS simulation models to include proposed changes for security and reliability.
  • Simulation-based analysis studies of the secure DNS, to determine weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and performance bottlenecks.
