Information-Centric Networking (ICN) is an approach to evolve the Internet infrastructure to directly support accessing Named Data Objects (NDOs) as a first-order network service. Data objects become independent of location, application, storage, and means of transportation, allowing for inexpensive and ubiquitous in-network caching and replication. The expected benefits are improved efficiency and security, better scalability with respect to information/bandwidth demand, and better robustness in challenging communication scenarios.

         Information-Centric Networking (ICN) Research Challenges


   This memo describes research challenges for Information-Centric    Networking (ICN), an approach to evolve the Internet infrastructure    to directly support information distribution by introducing uniquely    named data as a core Internet principle.  Data becomes independent    from location, application, storage, and means of transportation,    enabling or enhancing a number of desirable features, such as    security, user mobility, multicast, and in-network caching.    Mechanisms for realizing these benefits is the subject of ongoing    research in the IRTF and elsewhere.  This document describes current    research challenges in ICN, including naming, security, routing,    system scalabi...
