A Directory Infrastructure to Support Mobile Services
Ammar Khalid
Dartmouth TR2001-391

Abstract: Traditional Voice-over-IP applications such as Microsoft NetMeeting assume that the user is on a machine with a fixed IP address. If, however, the user connects to the Internet, via a wireless network, on a handheld device, his IP address frequently changes as he moves from one subnet to another. In such a situation, we need a service that can be queried for the most current IP address of a person whom we wish to contact. In this project, we design and implement such a directory service. The service authenticates all callers and callees, is robust against most host failure, and scales to several thousand registered users.
