Techniques are described herein to provide distributed end-to-end policy management across a chain of service provider networks (i.e., administrative domains). The techniques leverage an agent-centric framework for a fully distributed peer-to-peer network that allows nodes to maintain decentralized tamper-proof hash chains (e.g., Holochain). With this framework, the techniques are able to quickly and conveniently indicate network policies across a chain of service providers, in a distributed manner, and guarantee that requirements of the policies are met along the chain of service providers.
