Method And Apparatus For Configuring Routing Paths In A Custodian-based Routing Architecture

Abstract

A network-connectivity system uses one or more local endpoints to establish a set of directed network connections across network domains. During operation, the system determines a first network domain which is to function as a via that communicates data from other network devices to a predetermined endpoint of a local domain. The system then generates a via-domain description, which references the first network domain as a via for the local domain. The system also determines a second network domain which is to function as a proxy that communicates data to other network domains from a predetermined endpoint of the local domain. The system generates a proxy-domain description, which references the second network domain as a proxy for the local domain. The system then synchronizes the via-domain description with devices of the first network domain, and synchronizes the proxy-domain description with devices of the second network domain.
