The control plane is in charge of interactions with:

  • user applications, that may request the execution of sessions and access R/W the topology database;
  • the GIS, that publishes the results of the monitoring activity;
  • the Certification Authority to retrieve certificates.

    Two low level modules are envisioned:

  • the network monitoring sensor which performs passive monitoring;
  • the module that implements the database proxy
