Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of SCION. The goals to be met by a secure Internet architecture were described in the previous chapter, but to recapitulate briefly, our main aim is to design a network architecture that offers highly available and efficient point-to-point packet delivery, even if some of the network operators and devices are actively malicious. The following chapters describe the SCION architecture in increasing detail.
