  Hi all,I want to know that whether Interest Lifetime is static or dynamic in native NDN. Let’s consider the consumer setting the InterestLifetime to 4s. After passing 5 hops, the Interest packet will remain 4s; or it will be dynamically updated with time (e.g., after traversing 4 hops the InterestLifetime will become 3s).
By dynamic Interest lifetime, I mean is it possible for forwarders to use the InterestLifetime to check whether the lifetime of received Interest is greater than zero, so that it participates in its dissemination. 
Thanks in anticipation.
