A library for designing complete stateful network equipment (contains linux kernel patch + user space deamon)
In operational networks, the availability of some critical elements like gateways, firewalls and proxies must be guaranteed. Some important issues like the replication of these network elements, the reduce of unavailability time and the need of detecting failure of an element must
be studied. The aim of the SNE library is to support issues related to the implementation of high available network elements, with specially focus on Linux systems and firewalls. The SNE library ( Stateful Network Equipment) is an add-on to current High Availability (HA) protocols. This library is based on the replication of the connection tracking table system for designing stateful network equipments.
