Information-Centric Networking Beyond Baseline Scenarios: Research Advances and Implementation

| Information-Centric Networking (ICN) has received significant attention in recent years, mainly driven by the fact that distributing and manipulating information has become the major function on the Internet today. Unlike the traditional host-centric networking paradigm where information is obtained by contacting specified named hosts, ICN aims at providing native network primitives for efficient information retrieval by directly naming and operating on information objects. weiterlesen
