How humans will bring the Internet to space

IPNSIG board member Vint Cerf brought this nice article about DTN to our attention…

It’s slanted towards a general audience, and provides some historical background of DTN development. It emphasizes the need to maintain the open architecture of DTN, and stresses the importance of the security features being built into the protocol suite (for more information about the Bundle Security Protocol and how it works, see the security section of the DTN Primer at: DTN_Tutorial_v3.2). The article also features excerpts of interviews with long-time IPNSIG friends Leigh Torgerson (NASA/JPL) and David Israel (NASA Goddard SFC).
