|Abstract:||Referencing remote entities by names rather than by addresses is desirable in computer network or a joint-network. In this thesis, the naming and addressing problems in the internetwork environment are studied. Four naming and addressing schemes for the bit-string I-names are designed. In these naming and addressing schemes, bit-string I-names of entities are used in the packet headers to identify source and destination entities, as opposed to traditional networks or joint-networks in which addresses of entities are used in packet headers.
Schemes that support symbolic I-names used by human subscribers are also discussed. The symbolic I-names can be: (1) symbolic I-names constructed according to the functions of the entities, (2) symbolic I-names constructed according to the network names and host names in which these I-names are constructed, or (3) simply aliases. The evaluation of the transportation delays of data packets and control packets for all schemes shows that different schemes perform better than others in certain situations. In addition, a four-way handshake protocol is devised to ensure reliable communication between two entities across an unreliable transmission medium.
