Advancing Scientific Data Sharing, Discovery, and Security with Information Centric Networking (ICN)
Time 10/18/18 04:00PM-04:50PM
Information Centric Networking (ICN) is an umbrella term for a new Internet architecture that names content instead of end-hosts. ICN is a vast improvement over the current TCP/IP architecture because the new service model is a far better match to application needs, supporting mobility, highly efficient data dissemination and substantially better security models.
Active ICN efforts span more than eight years and offer multiple robust open source codebases and global testbeds that are open to the community. Among others, these testbeds support high-bandwidth scientific applications such climate, high-energy Physics (HEP) and genomics over existing infrastructure such as Internet2 and ESnet. High-performance ICN nodes offer a high bandwidth overlay, large capacity caches and smart multipath forwarding strategies. Experiments using existing scientific workflows have demonstrated the benefit of ICN both in terms of speed of retrieval, discovery and network layer caching.
This session will present two realizations of ICN, Named Data Networking (NDN) and Content-Centric Networking (CCN). We will explore applications and use cases and share lessons learned. Session attendees will learn how ICN is having an impact on the advancement of scientific discovery and networking research in multiple areas including: data-intensive research, identity and security, operational efficiency within R&E networks, and cyber security. Attendees will also see demonstrations of the new architecture and be guided into obtaining access to ICN resources to develop their own applications and testbeds.
