The Postmodern Internetwork Architecture project, a collaboration among researchers at the Universities of Kentucky, Kansas and Maryland, aims to produce a clean-slate design for a thin (inter)network layer. Design goals for this Internet layer include complete separation of routing from forwarding, avoidance of hierarchical or centrally-assigned identifiers in the forwarding plane, and provision of explicit mechanisms to support policies of the various stakeholders (specifically users and service providers).
