The B.A.B.E.L Routing Protocol (After-Hours Seminar)

Date(s) - 27/11/2018
18:30 - 20:30

Ecole Polytechnique, Drahi-X



Juliusz Chroboczek, Université de Paris-Diderot.


Babel is a loop-avoiding distance vector routing protocol originally
developed by Juliusz Chroboczek. This talk will explain how the Babel protocol avoids the familiar “counting to infinity” problem of distance vector protocols, and argue that this technique makes a robust and extensible protocol. The talk will further describe a few extensions to Babel, developed over the years, notably latency-sensitive and source-specific (SADR) routing.
