Software Protocol Engineering for Linux Routers


The main contribution of this work is a software engineering approach that will help the developers of the routing algorithms to support their algorithms inside the network stack of Linux operating system. We explain in detail the network infra-structure of Linux operating system and then identify the important interfaces for the implementation of novel Nature inspired routing algorithms. We believe, the work presented will act as an important guideline for the Networking community in general and Nature inspired routing community in particular, for realization and evaluation of their novel algorithms in real Linux routers.
