In the near future users will be able to move freely and still have
seamless network and Internet connectivity. We envision that the In-
ternet of the future will interconnect mobile or stationary clouds into
the existing IP infrastructure. While many of the Internet protocols
are immensely successful in traditional networks, we believe they
will be inappropriate for communication among limited-capability
devices in amorphous clouds. The question we are trying to address
is whether the network layer services provided by IPv4 and IPv6 [1]
are necessary and sufficient for supporting heterogeneous devices in
these highly dynamic, arbitrarily dense environments. The problem
with an IP infrastructure is that, for certain applications, it adds un-
necessary complexity. The proposed research is based on the spec-
