While not directly related to VirtualBox, networking is a major part
of any virtualization platform, and since VirtualBox is an Open-Source
project I decided to share a bit with you, the Open-Source community.

Secretly in the shadows, I have been developing a new Internet
Protocol "Five Fields" for quite some time. It is designed to be
better than IPv4 and IPv6. And even made a nice presentation about
IP-FF and it's features:


It now consists of 10 parts: (submitted as IETF draft RFCs)

1. Internet Protocol - Five Fields:

2. Internet Protocol - Five Fields: Addressing Architecture

3. Internet Protocol - Five Fields: Babysitter (new NAT)

4. Internet Protocol - Five Fields: DHCP

5. Internet Protocol - Five Fields: DNS extensions

6. Internet Protocol - Five Fields: ICMP

7. Internet Protocol - Five Fields: Link Address Resolution Algorithm
(ARP replacement)

8. Internet Protocol - Five Fields: Mobile TCP (Mobile IP replacement)

9. Internet Protocol - Five Fields: TCP.64 extensions

10. Internet Protocol - Five Fields: UDP

Basically advanced NAT {+ UDP tunnel) may become a transition method
from current IPv4.

And if you'd like to co-operate with me, let me know.

Happy new year 2016, and new Internet begging !
Happy VirtualBoxing !
