SCION (Scalability, Control and Isolation on Next-Generation Networks) is a new, secure Internet architecture that promises high availability even in the event of possible attacks. The approach ensures transparency about the choice of network paths and allows multipath routing across multiple network domains. SCION is also ideal for secure and available communication for OT networks. We pursue these approaches in cooperation with ETH Zurich.
