In an international environment

  • "After working on securing today's internet for over a decade we found that only a new architecture can provide the strong properties we were seeking. Over the past 12 years we have been working on the SCION next-generation Internet architecture, with generous support from Swisscom that facilitated our research. The commercial deployment of SCION offers new opportunities that we expect from an Internet for the 21st century."
