Consumer-Producer API for Named Data Networking by Ilya Moiseenko and Lixia Zhang
NDN Technical Report NDN-0017, August 2014
This paper presents Consumer-Producer integrated processing API that provides generic programming interface to NDN communication protocols and architectural modules. Consumer context associates NDN name prefix with consumer-specific data transfer parameters and controls how Interests are expressed and how returning Data packets are processed. Producer context associates NDN name prefix with producer-specific data transfer parameters and controls how data is produced and secured, and how Interests are demultiplexed. Both contexts are extendable to admit functionality of newly developed protocols and modules.
