The current Internet, which was designed over 40 years ago, is facing unprecedented challenges in many aspects, especially in the commercial context. The emerging demands for security, mobility, content distribution, etc. are hard to be met by incremental changes through ad-hoc patches. New clean-slate architecture designs based on new design principles are expected to address these challenges. In this survey article, we investigate the key research topics in the area of future Internet

We aim to draw an overall picture of the current research progress on the future Internet architecture. A Survey of the Research on Future Internet Architectures Internet 3.0, which is a project in which the authors are involved, includes developing an open and secure service delivery network architecture. This will allow telecommunication carriers to offer SDN services that can be used by many application service providers.
