Abstract

While the path resolution process is necessary to turn a destination address into a set of paths, this is not sufficient for establishing communication between SCION-connected endpoints: we also need a way to turn an Internet name into a SCION address. As name resolution and path establishment are separate processes, with different timescales and triggered by separate events, we design a dedicated infrastructure that is optimized for each purpose.
