RINASim is a stand-alone OMNeT++ model framework for the simulation of RINA-based networks. RINA (Recursive InterNetwork Architecture) itself is a new (and complete) clean-slate architecture that tries to touch and codify every part of communication within computer networks.
The main purpose is to offer the community with reliable and the most up-to-date tool (in the sense of RINA specification compliance) for simulating RINA-based computer networks. RINASim at its current state represents an entirely working implementation of the simulation environment for RINA. The simulator contains all mechanisms of RINA according to the current specification. RINASim does not depend on INET or any other external library.
RINASim was developed at Brno University of Technology. The developmnent started as one of the FP7 EU PRISTINE deliverables, and continues beyond the end of the project.
