   This paper presents a content-based access control access control model for
   content stored in network storage. The model enforces the access control directly
   over content through encrypting content at the time of production, rather than
   re- lying on a third party (such as data storage) as traditional perimeter-based
   access control model. We present the de- sign of Name-based Access Control (NAC),
   which implements the content-based access control model in Named Data Networking
   (NDN). We demonstrate how to make use of naming convention to explicitly convey
   access control policy and efficiently distribute access control keys, thus
   enabling effective access control. We evaluate the scalability of NAC against
   CCN-AC, another encryption-based access control scheme. The results suggest that
   NAC is more suitable for large scale distributed data production and consumption.
