Brussels, December 21-22, 2011

R7.6 Critical infrastructures in future Internets ‡ How protected resources found in social organisations can operate in the context of a future Internet.
o o

Vital services are realized in certain ways today. Do they use methods that contradict architectural aspects of a future Internet?

‡ Transition from critical services today to critival services in future Internets ‡ Partners: ULANC, UoS, IIN, OXF
