Policy-based networking is the new frontier in networking. A high-level directive given to the network at a single console, it promises easy management of critical network elements such as security, Quality of Service, and device configuration. The translation of high level policies into the device specific configurations is a complex procedure, requiring detailed knowledge of the topology and routes in the network, and translation-enabling algorithms. This book would take the mystery out of this process, allowing you, the network engineer to build policy support into your network architecture. Only scattered pieces of the solution can currently be found in various IETF and DMTF working groups, or in some research presentations and workshops. In-depth understanding of the algorithms behind policy-based networking is necessary for network engineers/architects who want to create new products/applications that deliver policy features.

Dinesh C. Verma manages the Policy and Network Control Research Group at the IBM T J Watson Research Center. He has worked in the area of networking for more than a decade, and he has been a member of research groups at the University of California, Berkeley, Philips Research, and IBM. Verma has written many papers and articles in various journals in the field, and he holds several patents related to networking technologies. He has been an active participant in various industrial forums such as the IETF and ATM Forums, and he acts as an advisor to the IBM and Tivoli product divisions in the field of networking. His current research interests include performance management and Quality of Service in IP networks, employing policies to simplify management of network performance and security, and using content distribution networks to improve dynamic application performance.
