Resilient, Scalable, IPv6 Network
|Contact:||Julien Muchembled <email@example.com>|
re6stnet creates a resilient, scalable, ipv6 network on top of an existing ipv4 network, by creating tunnels on the fly, and then routing targeted traffic through these tunnels.
re6stnet can be used to:
Building an ipv4 network is also supported if you have software that does not support ipv6.
A re6stnet network consists of at least one server (re6st-registry) and many nodes (re6stnet). The server is only used to deliver certificates for secure authentication in establishing tunnels, and to bootstrap new nodes. re6stnet can detect and take into account nodes present on the local network.
re6stnet guarantees that if there exists a route between two machines, traffic will be correctly routed between these two machines. Even if the registry node is down, the probability that the network isn’t connected is very low for big enough networks (more than a hundred nodes).
Since nodes don’t need to know the whole graph of the network, re6stnet is easily scalable to tens of thousand of nodes.
