New Publication: Persistent Interests in Named Data Networking

We are proud to announce that our article Persistent Interests in Named Data Networking has been accepted for presentation at the 4th International Workshop on Research Advancements in Future Internet Architectures (RAFNET 2018). The event will take place from June 03 – 06 in Porto. You may find the abstract of the publication below, and a preprint version here.

Abstract – Recent research in the field of Information-Centric
Networking (ICN) shows the need for push-based data transfer,
which is not supported in current pull-based ICN architectures,
such as Named Data Networking (NDN). IoT deployments as well
as emergency notifications and real-time multimedia communi-
cation are well suited to be realized using the ICN principles,
but experience challenges in pull-based environments. Persistent
Interests (PIs) are a promising approach to introduce push-
like traffic in Interest-based ICN architectures such as NDN.
In this paper, we explore the characteristics of PIs and discuss
advantages and disadvantages of using them. We provide an
efficient solution for preventing so-called Data loops, which are
introduced by giving up NDN’s one-request-per-packet principle.
Furthermore, we investigate the performance of PIs compared
to classical Interests in terms of the computational complexity of
forwarding and discuss possible applications of PIs. [Preprint]

We are looking to forward to meet you @ RAFNET 2018.
