Since its inception in the '70s, the Internet has sustained a tremendous growth. The architectural choices made at the birth of the Internet cannot withstand the ever-growing need for worldwide communication. Although many changes have been made in the network layer, it seems clear now that only a radical change of this layer will help the Internet overwhelm the enormous pressure put on by emerging technologies such as group communication, mobility and security. A unifying architecture designed to solve the four major problems of the current architecture of the Internet is proposed: scalability, mobility, multicast and security. It is called DHARMA that stands for Dynamic Hierarchical Addressing, Routing and naMing Architecture.
