    Policies are rules governing the choices in behavior of a system. They are increasingly being used as a means of implementing flexible and adaptive systems for management of Internet services, networks, and security systems. There is also a need for a common specification of security policy for large-scale multi-organizational systems where access control is implemented in a variety of heterogeneo... View full abstract»

    We present a policy-based architecture for the control and management of content distribution networks that form an overlay of caching proxies over an underlying physical network. The architecture extends the policy framework used for controlling network quality of service (QoS) and security to content distribution networks. The fundamental advantage of a policy-based framework is that it allows a... View full abstract»

    The COPS protocol has been designed to enable communication on the interface between the policy decision administrator and the policy enforcement devices in a policy-based networking environment. It can be recognized that on the same interface there is the need to transfer information related to the request of resource by QoS clients and for the allocation of resources by resource allocation serve...

    Policy-based management can guide the behavior of a network or distributed system through high-level declarative directives that are dynamically introduced, checked for consistency, refined, and evaluated, resulting typically in a series of low-level actions. We actually view policies as a means of extending the functionality of management systems dynamically, in conjunction with preexisting hard-... View full abstract»

    The management of network infrastructure in an enterprise is a complex and. daunting affair. In an era of increasing technical cornplexity, it is becoming difficult to find trained personnel who can manage the new features introduced into the various servers, routers, and switches. Policy-based network management provides a means by which the administration process can be simplified and largely au... View full abstract»

    The growth of computer networks has revealed significant scalability and efficiency limitations to the traditional management techniques. Policy-based networking (PBN) has emerged as a promising paradigm for configuration management and service provisioning. The common open policy service (COPS) and its extension for policy provisioning (COPS-PR) are currently being developed as the protocols to i... View full abstract»
