   The fundamental departure of the Named-Data Networking (NDN) communication
   paradigm from the IP principles requires exten- sive evaluation through
   experimentation, and simulation is a necessary tool to enable the
   experimentation at scale. We released the first ver- sion of ndnSIM, an open
   source NS-3-based NDN simulator, back in June 2012. Since then, ndnSIM has
   undergone substantial development resulting in ndnSIM 2, the first version of
   which was released in Jan- uary 2015. This paper reports the design and
   features of the updated simulator. The goal of the updated simulator is to
   match the simulation platform to the latest advancements of NDN
   research. Therefore, it uses the ndn-cxx library (NDN C++ library with
   eXperimental eXtensions) and the NDN Forwarding Daemon (NFD) to enable
   experiments with real code in a simulation environment.
