Active networks are a novel approach to network architecture that break from the traditional networking paradigm by allowing for the injection of customized computations into the network nodes. They provide a flexible network infrastructure that can be extended at runtime to implement the sophisticated network services needed to support the digitized battlespace of the future. This paper presents the design of an active network architecture that leverages the existing IP infrastructure to implement capabilities for the deployment of user-specified computations within an IP network. The Common Active Network Services (CANS) framework, described in this paper, allows for user- specified computations in the form of Java code only to be injected into the network. Such computations are executed at strategic points within the network to implement new services targeted for mobile wireless applications.
