Key concept

BEBA’s goal is to entail platform-agnostic programming of stateful flow/traffic processing logic directly within network nodes, thus rescinding the today’s necessary reliance on external (slowpath) controllers.

Moreover, BEBA will provide the programmers with the ability to control, via the above stateful behavioral descriptions, an extended set of actions and primitives specifically devised for the monitoring and network security domain, so as to permit platform-agnostic programming of middlebox-type network functions.
