SCION The safest routing protocol for the Internet of the future.

The classic Internet is outdated. When a cornerstone of the modern Internet was defined in 1990 with the BGP protocol (Border Gateway Protocol), nobody could have imagined the demands that would one day be placed on the Internet. Accordingly, fundamental problems in the area of reliability and security on the Internet are still evident today. 

Professor Adrian Perrig's team at ETH Zurich has therefore set itself the task of eliminating these problems and creating a routing protocol for the next generation Internet. The result of these years of work is SCION. SCION is the most secure and reliable open inter-domain routing protocol. It was designed from the ground up to give senders of information complete control over their data. It combines the flexibility and accessibility of the public Internet with the security and reliability of a private MPLS network. 

SCION stands for "Scalability, Control and Isolation on Next-Generation Networks". Critical data is exchanged via defined paths in a highly secure, isolated ecosystem. The usual risks of cyber attacks (such as BGP hijacking or DDoS attacks) can be eliminated with SCION. Data transfer is provider-independent and takes place on efficient, authorized routes. SCION offers fundamentally new prerequisites for a secure Internet. SCION is tried and tested and has already been successfully deployed in critical services.
