Based on this principle, we develop an engineering model to design and analyze chemical protocols. We demonstrate the feasibility and usefulness of our approach with several new solutions to application scenarios ranging from a gossip-style aggregation protocol, over an enzymatic MAC protocol, to a chemical TCP-like congestion control algorithm, which ensures the coexistence and fairness among chemical and classical packet flows in the Internet.
The chemical reaction model has additional properties that are hard to achieve on traditional code execution platforms: We show how protocol software is able to continuously regenerate itself in order to exhibit intrinsically self-healing properties; our approach is based on self-replicating code and natural selection. We present a self-healing multipath routing protocol that is resilient to the removal of large parts of its own code.
With this work, we try to contribute to the future Internet by discovering the self-regulating capabilities of packet flows, which currently lie dormant.
