Today, the Internet has obtained an incredible success. But some aspects of the current Internet are limiting its further development to meet both current expectations as a trusted communication infrastructure and future demands for scaling to support a huge number of new users and devices. Security and IPv4/IPv6 connectivity are two mainly concerned problems among all of these aspects. In order to tackle these problems, many security techniques and IPv4/IPv6 transition mechanisms have been proposed in recent years. However, as these proposals were usually patchworks intended to satisfy a particular requirement, they breach the coherence of the original Internet architecture, and some of them even conflict with each other. Considering engineering difficulties and practical deployment issues, these proposals are not widely used. This thesis proposes a novel overlay infrastructure called Veno2, which aims to overcome critical deficiencies of the current Internet. Specifically, it is a newly designed open platform able to provide security, IPv4/IPv6 connectivity, mobility and performance and even other service functions in future. The salient feature of such Veno2 infrastructure is its great ease for deployment. There are no changes required on existing Internet infrastructures. Veno2 is implemented by using a STREAM framework.
