Networking papers collection

These pages are my own reference for papers I have read on the topic of networking, and in particular internet networking. The intent is to build up a library of read papers, summaries and bibliographic references (BibTeX format). The papers are split into categories as described below. If you're an author of one of these papers please don't hesitate to contact me with information or corrections if I have something wrong. The idea is not to review the paper in the sense of formal academic review but to summarise the paper in a few paragraphs and listing its core achievements.
