User-Centric Networking

Principal Investigator(s): 
Mark Allman

In collaboration with Case Western Reserve University, we are investigating foundation architectural constructs that bring users into networked systems in a way that has to this point not been possible. Rather than relegating users to an artifact of the application layer, we seek to accommodate users and their relationships at all layers of the system and to give users new controls over how their traffic is handled by the system.
