Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Newsletter for Summer 2017

The NDN project team compiles and publishes this newsletter periodically
to inform the community about recent activities, technical news,
meetings, publications, presentations, code releases, and upcoming
events. You can find these newsletters posted on the Named Data
Networking Project blog.


* From the NSF/Intel Partnership on Information-Centric Networking
  in Wireless Edge Networks (ICN-WEN) program:

  - PIs Alex Afanasyev, Jeff Burke, Jason Cong, Mario Gerla, Songwu
  Lu, Satyajayant Misra, and Lixia Zhang received an award "ICN-Enabled
  Secure Edge Networking with Augmented Reality (ICE-AR)" aims to
  develop a new wireless network architecture to address limitations
  in performance, scalability, and availability and provide pervasive
  support for emerging applications.  

  - Patrick Crowley, Romit Roy Choudhury, Panganamala Kumar,  Srinivas
  Shakkottai, I-Hong Hou, received  "SPLICE: Secure Predictive
  Low-Latency Information Centric Edge for Next Generation Wireless
  Networks" to design, develop and demonstrate SPLICE that will
  provide information guarantees to emerging applications.

* From the NSF CC* Integration program: 

  - PIs Edmund Yeh, Harvey Newman, and Christos Papadopoulos received
  an NSF award for "SANDIE: SDN-Assisted NDN for Data Intensive
  Experiments" that will develop and deploy SANDIE, a Named Data
  Networking (NDN) architecture supported by advanced Software
  Defined Network services for Data Intensive Science, with the
  Large Hadron Collider (LHC) high energy physics program as the
  leading use case.


* The Intel-NSF ICN-WEN Kickoff Workshop was held June 21-22, 2017
  in Hilsboro, OR. The workshop hosted an NDN tutorial as well as
  presentations from project participants. Tutorial videos and
  presentation slides can be found on the ICN-Enabled Secure Edge
  Networking with Augmented Reality (ICE-AR) website at

* On Monday August 21, 2017 the NDN team conducted a one-day
  SIGCOMM tutorial presenting an introduction to the architectural
  concepts, recent research results, demonstrations of the NDN
  testbed and a set of NDN applications, introductions to the
  open-source codebase and code development, experimental tools,
  NDN emulator, mini-NDN, an NDN simulator, and discussed future
  development. For more details, please see


* Junxiao Shi, Eric Newberry, and Beichuan Zhang, "On Broadcast-based
  Self-learning in Named Data Networking", published in IFIP
  Networking, June 2017 studies how broadcast-based self-learning
  may be applied to NDN networks.

* Mathias Gibbens, Chris Gniady, Lei Ye, and Beichuan Zhang, "Hadoop
  on Named Data Networking: Experience and Results" published in
  the Proc. ACM Meas. Anal. Comput. Syst., Vol. 1, No. 1, Article
  1. June 2017.

* Jeff Burke, "Browsing an Augmented Reality with Named Data
  Networking" (Invited Paper) published in the proceedings of IEEE
  Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN) 2017
  explores opportunities for an augmented reality web using Named
  Data Networking (NDN), a proposed future Internet architecture
  in which the network forwards intrinsically secure data packets
  directly based on application-defined names. By providing web
  semantics at packet granularity, NDN enables the success of the
  web to be pursued for low-latency, high-granularity, and
  context-dependent media in AR. The paper outlines emerging media
  types that could be part of a new AR browsing experience, briefly
  introduces NDN, describes benefits the architecture should provide
  via an example browser design, and enumerates related open research

* Spyridon Mastorakis, Alexander Afanasyev, Yingdi Yu, Lixia Zhang,
  "nTorrent: Peer-to-Peer File Sharing in Named Data Networking"
  published in the proceedings of IEEE Conference on Computer
  Communications and Networks (ICCCN) 2017 presents the design of
  nTorrent, a BitTorrent-like application that is based on the
  natively data-centric NDN network architecture. Through analysis
  and simulation-based experimentations, the paper exposes impacts
  of the network-level data-centricity on the design choices,
  implementation complexity, and protocol operations.

* Alexander Afanasyev, Xiaoke Jiang, Yingdi Yu, Jiewen Tan, Yumin
  Xia, Allison Mankin, and Lixia Zhang, "NDNS: DNS-like Name Service
  for NDN", published in the proceedings of the 26th International
  Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN), July
  2017 presents our experience with the design and development of
  Named Data Networking (NDN) that suggests the need for a similar
  always-on lookup service. To fulfill this need we have designed
  the NDNS (NDN DNS) protocol, and learned several interesting
  lessons through the process. Although DNSs request-response
  operations seem closely resembling NDNs Interest-Data packet
  exchanges, they operate at different layers in the protocol stack.
  Comparing DNS's implementations over IP protocol stack with NDNSs
  implementation over NDN reveals several fundamental differences
  between applications designs for host-centric IP architecture and
  data-centric NDN architecture.

* Ivan Voitalov, Rodrigo Aldecoa, Lan Wang, Dmitri Krioukov,
  "Geohyperbolic Routing and Addressing Schemes", presents an
  addressing scheme and a coupled network topology design scheme
  that guarantee essentially optimal routing scalability.  ACM
  SIGCOMM Computer Communications Review, July 2017.

* Spyridon Mastorakis, Alexander Afanasyev, Lixia Zhang, "On the
  Evolution of ndnSIM: an Open-Source Simulator for NDN Experimentation",
  ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review, July 2017" describes
  the design of ndnSIM and its evolution, and we elaborate on our
  design decisions and trade-offs. We also discuss the valuable
  lessons that we have learned throughout the ndnSIM development

* Christopher Gibson, Pablo Bermell-Garcia, Kevin Chan, Bongjun Ko,
  Alex Afanasyev, and Lixia Zhang, "Opportunities and Challenges
  for Named Data Networking to Increase the Agility of Military
  Coalitions", published in the proceedings of Proceedings of
  Workshop on Distributed Analytics InfraStructure and Algorithms
  for Multi-Organization Federations (DAIS Workshop), 2017, positions
  the opportunities and challenges for adopting Named Data Networking
  (NDN) in the specific context of military coalition operations
  and tactical networks.

* NDN PIs Lixia Zhang, Beichuan Zhang, and Lan Wang presented talks
  at the 2017 Future Innovation Centric Forum co-organised by the
  Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School, Southern University
  of Science and Technology and the CCF YOCSEF Shenzhen sub-forum,
  and held in Shenzhen Kirin Villa.  https://read01.com/Q35mxBR.html
