IRATI: an open source RINA implementation for Linux/OS

IRATI ( is an open-source RINA implementation initially developed by the FP7 IRATI project, now being enhanced by the FP7 PRISTINE and IRINA projects. This RINA implementation targets the Linux/OS, allowing RINA DIFs to be deployed over VLANs, TCP or UDP. PRISTINE is developing an SDK to facilitate the programmability of the different networking functions (addressing, routing, flow control, retransmission control, forwarding, resource allocation, authentication, encryption or access control). This talk will explain the main goals of the IRATI implementation, discuss the major design decisions, provide a high-level overview of the different components and describe some of the validation experiments carried out by the FP7 IRATI project.
