Architectural Development and Routing Design in Named Data Networking

Abstract: The Named Data Networking (NDN, http://named-data.net) project aims to develop a new Internet architecture to better support mobility, security, and data sharing among a large number of devices.  NDN moves away from IP's focus on addresses and locations and instead focuses on retrieving data using names directly.  This project involves eight universities and has received over $13 million in funding from NSF since 2010.  In this talk, I will first summarize the progress in NDN architectural development.  Then I will present the design of the Named-data Link State Routing protocol (NLSR), an intra-domain routing protocol for NDN.  I will end my talk with new developments in scaling up NDN routing.
