Tunnel Ethernet Traffic Over NDN

[This post is a repost from https://yoursunny.com/t/2017/tunnel-Ethernet-over-NDN/ written by NDN developer Junxiao Shi]

Named Data Networking (NDN) is a common network protocol for all applications and network environment. NDN’s network layer protocol runs on top of a best-effort packet delivery service, which includes physical channels such as Ethernet wires, and logical connections such as UDP or TCP tunnels over the existing Internet. Using this underlying connectivity, NDN provides a content retrieval service, which allows applications to fetch uniquely named “Data packets” each carrying a piece of data. The “data” could be practically anything: text file chunks, video frames, temperature sensor readings … they are all data. Likewise, a packet in a lower layer network protocol, such as an Ethernet frame, is also a piece of data. Therefore, it should be possible to encapsulate Ethernet traffic into NDN Data packets, and establish a Virtual Private Network (VPN) through NDN communication. This post describes the architecture of a proof-of-concept Ethernet-over-NDN tunneling program, and shows a simple performance benchmark over the real world Internet.

The Program

tap-tunnel creates an Ethernet tunnel between two nodes using NDN communication. Each node runs an instance of tap-tunnel.
This program collects packets sent into a TAP interface, and turn them into NDN packets. It then gains NDN connectivity by connecting to the local NDN Forwarding Daemon (NFD). The diagram below shows the overall architecture: Read More

Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Newsletter for Summer 2017

Awards

  • From the NSF/Intel Partnership on Information-Centric Networking in Wireless Edge Networks (ICN-WEN) program:
  • From the NSF CC* Integration program:
    • PIs Edmund Yeh, Harvey Newman, and Christos Papadopoulos received an NSF award for “SANDIE: SDN-Assisted NDN for Data Intensive Experiments” that will develop and deploy SANDIE, a Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture supported by advanced Software Defined Network services for Data Intensive Science, with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) high energy physics program as the leading use case.

Community Outreach

  • The Intel-NSF ICN-WEN Kickoff Workshop was held June 21-22, 2017 in Hilsboro, OR. The workshop hosted an NDN tutorial as well as presentations from project participants. Tutorial videos and presentation slides can be found on the ICN-Enabled Secure Edge Networking with Augmented Reality (ICE-AR) website.
  • On Monday August 21, 2017 the NDN team conducted a one-day SIGCOMM tutorial presenting an introduction to the architectural concepts, recent research results, demonstrations of the NDN testbed and a set of NDN applications, introductions to the open-source codebase and code development, experimental tools, NDN emulator, mini-NDN, an NDN simulator, and discussed future development.
