Hi Hisham,

There is no built-in way to do that, but you can always hack in the replacement policy and add something like

in insert method (see model/cs/custom-policies/* as a reference):

      inline bool
      insert (typename parent_trie::iterator item)
        static const Name& prefix("/prefix_10”);
        const Name& name = item->payload ()->GetData ()->GetName ();
        if (prefix.IsPrefixOf(name))
            return false;

         ... whatever existing code in insert method
