Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Newsletter for Oct 2018 – Feb 2019

The NDN project team compiles and publishes this newsletter periodically to inform the community about recent activities, technical news, meetings, publications, presentations, code releases, and upcoming events. You can find these newsletters posted on the Named Data Networking Project blog.

Community Outreach

  • The 7th NDN Hackathon was the first remote hackathon which was held in October 20-21, 2018. This first remote hackathon had teams working on various hacks that would directly address NDN research needs, create new NDN tools or modify exiting tools, create or improve documents or know how’s. For more information see 7th NDN Hackathon

  • NDN Project has been selected as an organization for Google Summer of Code 2019

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
