Lay Summary (Englisch)

Lay summary
The goal of this research project is to develop protocol implementations with inherent self-healing functionality. We wish to obtain intrinsically robust protocol implementations where errors can occur in the "core" protocol implementation as well as in the detection and correction part. The software must be able to detect and replace misbehaving software parts at run time, while continuing to provide the service, although perhaps less efficiently during the transitory repair phase.In todays protocols, these activities are mostly handled manually, where network managers monitor the network for anomalous performance or react on user complaints about service disruptions. Resilient and self-healing protocols would enable safe automated installation of new protocols, protocol upgrade, and run-time customization of protocols to adapt to different network situations.A key element is that we have to use continuously self-rewriting and redundant software. If some elements of the software becomes non-functional, the other working parts will quickly replace them. Our approach uses artificial chemistries where molecules can easily be mapped to data packets in a computer network.
