Measurement and optimization of access control lists

  • Sándor Palugyai


This paper deals with the examination of Access Control Lists (ACLs) that are used in IP routers mainly for providing network admission control and maintaining a certain level of quality of service. In our work we present a method for measuring the performance impact of ACLs on the packet forwarding capabilities of a router. Besides, our study proposes new methods to model and optimize the operation and reduce the redundancy of ACLs.
