Poor Man's Content Centric Networking (with TCP)

Sarolahti, P., Ott, J., Budigere, K. and Perkins, C.S. (2011) Poor Man's Content Centric Networking (with TCP). Technical Report. Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland.




A number of different architectures have been proposed in support of data-oriented or information-centric networking. Besides a similar visions, they share the need for designing a new networking architecture. We present an incrementally deployable approach to content-centric networking based upon TCP. Content-aware senders cooperate with probabilistically operating routers for scalable content delivery (to unmodified clients), effectively supporting opportunistic caching for time-shifted access as well as de-facto synchronous multicast delivery. Our approach is application protocol-independent and provides support beyond HTTP caching or managed CDNs. We present our protocol design along with a Linux-based implementation and some initial feasibility checks.
