Hi huyao,

Concept of nonce makes sense only for interest packets, to identify the same interests and prevent forwarding loops. 

If there are different producers generating data within the same namespace, you can simply ask the producers to append a unique component to the name of the generated packet.  (Ideally, all packets in NDN network have unique names.). Would this work for you?
