Fostering a Secure Framework for National Research and Education Network
MetadataShow full item record
In the context of management of network services, wide-spread deployment and security problems requiring considerable human efforts and involvement, secure and distributed management mechanism become a central concern. Considering both National and International indicators, there is a big inadequacy on secured networks in the developing countries compared to other countries. This important problem will definitely affect the collaborative efforts in research and education networking in Africa. In order to see to the improvement towards emerging networks and collaboration in Africa, the paper proposes a framework not exploited through the collaborative research and educational network by malicious interference of the shared resources. The paper tends to bridge the gap of insufficient ICT infrastructures using minimal hardware that demonstrated it can be used for building higher level security protocols. In order to tolerate the failure and provide uninterrupted services to network components, the work examined the behaviour and fault tolerance of the proposed framework.
