This paper presents a viewpoint of the management for the Future Internet. For this description we consider the architectural model developed by the EU IST Autonomic Internet - AUTOI - consortium for the management design of the Future Internet as a service- and self-aware network that guarantees built-in orchestrated reliability, robustness, mobility, context, access, security, service support and self-management of the communication resources and services. The paper positions the autonomic network management approach taken by the AUTOI solution in a Future Internet scenario and describes the main interactions involved of the different distributed management systems running within the network in the context of the aforementioned scenario. The paper also provides a selection of the technical difficulties encountered so far while developing such a management approach.
