Key Outcomes

The project will produce proof-of-concept implementations of the proposed solutions. The clean-slate implementation will consider the redesign of the Internet’s lower layers, while the overlay design will be built on top of IP as a potential migration option.

Some innovations may be patented. However, the results of the project will be, as much as possible, published as scientific papers, and the source code will be made available under a liberal license (such as BSD). Most of the PSIRP deliverables will be released to the public domain and can therefore be found on this website (i.e. Publications & Presentations) for everybody to read.

In the original spirit of the Internet (“rough consensus and working code”), the PSIRP project believes in good ideas implemented well.
