For supporting mobility in environments without any clear infrastructure and topology like MANET (VANET in particular), it's been developing like a charm. But as far as I've learned, it's producer-side mobility support in large scales still has some serious challenges, particularly in scenarios like mobile caller-callee. And as "A New Perspective on Mobility Support" has reported, none of the proposed solutions(Proxy based, Rendezvous point based, ...) seems to have a NDN-likely technique. I'm eager to work on it as my B.S thesis. But the problem is, when I look at the ICN workshops, conferences, articles, posters, demos and etc, I cannot find real attempts on this(unless Kite I may say). Not that I've seen for example about Routing or Security. And now I'm wondering: Is it really that clear?! Maybe you can guide me to a vision I don't have.

thanks for your msg. I wonder what you meant by "Is it really that clear?!”.
If you are asking whether it is clear that NDN can offer superior mobility support than TCP/IP, then you know the answer is YES, right?
If you are asking whether mobile producer solutions have been fully developed: it is still being developed, hence the need for your effort on this problem.  We *are* developing solutions, first for specific application scenarios, which help us understand how to provide general solutions.
If you are asking for examples of routing solutions: I’m sure you’ve seen NLSR work as an example; we are also actively working on hyperbolic routing as potential long term directly.
For security, you may look into recent NDN retreat which focused on security solution development.
