Seamless IGP Migrations

Enabling seamless reconfiguration of a running network by following strict operational ordering

Network-wide migrations of a running network, such as the replacement of a routing protocol or the modification of its configuration, can improve the scalability, manageability, security or the performances of the entire network. However, such migrations are an important source of concerns for network operators as the reconfiguration campaign can lead to long and service-affecting outages. In this work, we propose several techniques to address the problem of seamlessly (i.e. without loosing IP packets) modifying the configuration of commonly used routing-protocols.

NCGuard: Network Configuration Safeguard

Slogan: 
NCGuard allows network architects to generate validated network configurations

Overview

Today, most IP networks are still configured manually on a router-by-router basis. This is error-prone and often leads to misconfiguration.

NCGuard is a tool that allows a network architect to apply a safer methodology by generating validated network configuration. NCGuard relies heavily on software engineering techniques.
