Practical Programmable Packets. Jonathan T. Moore, Michael Hicks, and Scott Nettles. In Proceedings of the Twentieth IEEE Computer and Communication Society INFOCOM Conference, pages 41-50. IEEE, April 2001.

We present SNAP (Safe and Nimble Active Packets), a new scheme for programmable (or active) packets centered around a new low-level packet language. Unlike previous active packet approaches, SNAP is practical: namely, adding significant flexibility over IP without compromising safety and security or efficiency. In this work we compare SNAP's flexibility to other active packet systems, give proof sketches of its novel approach to resource control, and present experimental data showing SNAP attains performance extremely close to that of a software IP router.
