Toward Zero Internet Administration Technology -- The case of DNS and BGP Administration

Cheng Soon Giap (9651130)

Knowledgeable network engineering practitioners are urgently needed in today's rapid growing networks. However, the community of these individuals is very small.

In this thesis, we discuss our Zero Internet Administration Technology which is one of the most important technology for today's network system. This technology significantly reduce the job of network administrator in particular and computer user in general by eliminating repetitive tasks, application configuration job and etc.

Our approach has been bottom-up. We began by identifying requirement in formulating the methodology toward this technology by considering the case of DNS (Domain Name System) and inter-domain routing configuration in BGP (Border Gateway Protocol). We also present our solutions by implementing integrated tools with GUI for managing it.

Finally, we use this experience to identify the requirement in developing applications for this technology.
