Discover local hub prefix¶
Some applications need to discover prefix(es) under which they can publish data / which Interests local hub will be able to forward down to the application. In order to discover that, applications need to send an interest for /localhop/nfd/rib/routable-prefixes prefix. Response data to the interest contains a list of prefixes and should be encoded as:
Response ::= DATA-TYPE TLV-LENGTH Name (= /localhop/nfd/rib/routable-prefixes/[version]/[segment]) MetaInfo (= ResponseMetaInfo) Content (= ResponseContent) Signature ResponseMetaInfo ::= META-INFO-TYPE TLV-LENGTH ContentType (= DATA) FreshnessPeriod (= 5000) ResponseContent ::= Name+
ResponseContent should contain at least one Name, which should be routable towards the face from which the request has been received. The requester may process list of the returned names and pick whichever it wants to use.
For now, the /localhop/nfd/rib/routable-prefixes data is served by ndn-autoconfig-server.
