Imagine the internet did not exist today! How could it be developed? What would it be like? The objective of the NovaGenesis project is to generate a new Internet.

The technology available today makes it possible to develop a much better internet, one which will be able to cope with the challenges of the next decades, i.e., an internet that will help our society to get even farther and to be better. The amount of resources available in our homes today is far bigger than those which existed at the time the internet was conceived. We can take advantage of these new technologies to create the new convergent architectures of information of the future.

NovaGenesis is a new internet architecture starting from scratch. Its name was chosen because, in our point of view, this revolutionary internet will be so different from the current one that it can be seen as a new digital beginning.

We published the paper below in 2012 presenting a new paradigm for the integration of these technologies. The IoIS paradigm, as implemented in NovaGenesis, enables the integration of information-centric networking (ICN), network function virtualization (NFV), service-centric networking (SCN), and software-defined networking (SDN). Content, services, operating systems, hosts, and any other existences are named. A generic name resolution system provides name mapping among network existences, favoring name-based routing (NBR). Function chaining is supported by publish/subscribe and NBR. SDN is integrated by Controller-as-a-Service (CaaS) philosophy.
