Critical Infrastructure vs Computer Science vs Software Engineering - We are Doomed

The success of the end to end principle has led to a commonly held fallacy that the Internet core is simple and stupid. A corollary to this is that there is nothing interesting here for networking research. Our experience with the overwhelming difficulty of managing and operating core functionality tells us that exactly the opposite is true. At the heart of the problem is a lack of network level models and abstractions. The evolution of appropriate models and abstractions requires a deep understanding of the data networking domain. We claim that addressing these problems should be one focus of the networking research community.
