Welcome to the home of the Flexible Internetwork Stack (FINS) Framework project. The FINS Framework project is a research project that aims at making experimental networking research easier by developing tools and software that help researchers implement networking protocols and concepts more easily than with current methods. Through this, we hope to encourage researchers to take more of their ideas to the implementation stage of design and, in the end, to help further networking research.
The FINS Framework project is an NSF funded collaborative project between faculty and students at Virginia Tech and Bucknell University.
