X-Bone project dynamically deploys and manages Internet overlays to reduce configuration effort and increase network component sharing.
The X-Bone discovers, configures, and monitors network resources to create overlays over existing IP networks. Overlays are useful for deploying overlapping virtual networks on shared infrastructure and for simplifying topology.
The X-Bone extends current overlay management by adding dynamic resource discovery, deployment, and monitoring, and allows network components (hosts, routers) to participate simultaneously in multiple overlays.
The X-Bone's two-layer IP in IP tunneled overlays support existing applications and unmodified routing, multicast, and DNS services in unmodified host operating systems. This two-layer scheme uniquely supports node revisitation and recursive overlays, which is critical for fault tolerance and dynamic relocation.
The X-Bone uses multicast to simplify resource discovery, and provides secure deployment as well as secure overlays.
What's New in This Release:
LDAP support, replication, a global registry, and multiple certificate authorities were added.
The UI was cleaned and updated. Legacy support for Red Hat 9 and Apache 1.3 was dropped.
Many bugfixes were made.
