Information-Centric Networking at Internet2

Time 05/16/16 03:00PM-04:00PM

Room Great America 1&2 (6th Floor)

Session Abstract

Today's Internet is firmly rooted in the architecture of the 19th century telephone system: connecting one device to another. Information-Centric Networking (ICN) is an alternative architecture in which the fundamental entities are data objects, and the resultant technology secures the data objects themselves (rather than the hosts on which they may at the moment reside) and routes on their names. Several examples of this architecture have resulted from a visionary ten-year-long NSF program; they have been developed to a sufficiently advanced stage that they may be trailed and compared with one another and with legacy architectures. Internet2, Cisco, and PARC, in collaboration with several member universities are building an ICN testbed on AL2S. This session will present the testbed implementation and preliminary results from its use.
