libnetwork is implemented in Go for connecting Docker containers. The aim is to provide a Container Network Model (CNM) that helps programmers provide the abstraction of network libraries.

- Replacing the networking module of the Docker Engine with libnetwork
- Allowing local and remote drivers to provide networking to containers
- Providing a
