The Named Data Networking (NDN) project team compiles and publishes this newletter monthly to inform the community about recent project activities, meetings, publications, code releases, and upcoming events. You can find these newsletters on the Named Data Networking Project website at http://named-data.net/category/newsletter/
1. Our recent annual report covers Named Data Net activities in 2013-14. The report summarizes highlights from our research spanning applications, routing, scalable forwarding, security and fundamental theory. It includes updates on forwarding daemon development and testbed deployment, and covers outreach activities such as education initiatives, our first NDN Community Workshop, the first ACM ICN conference, the NDN Consortium, and more. Please see http://named-data.net/project/annual-progress-summaries/2013-2014/ for the report in its entirety.
2. On 24 September 2014, The 1st ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking (ICN) included several offerings from the NDN Team:
- An Introduction to NDN and its Software Architecture covered the NDN architecture and applications; library support for application development; the NDN routing protocol and forwarding daemon (NFD); the NDN testbed: current operations, monitoring tools and procedures for participation; open challenges in NDN design and development, to share with the community and invite efforts in addressing them; and Illustrations of installation and use of the NDN platform and simulator, as well as HOWTOs to assist in further development.

- Paper: “On the Role of Routing in Named Data Networking” by Cheng Yi, Jerald Abraham, Alexander Afanasyev, Lan Wang, Beichuan Zhang, and Lixia Zhang shows that routing protocols remain highly beneficial in an NDN network even with the new ability to detect and recover from network failures locally.
- Paper: “VIP: A Framework for Joint Dynamic Forwarding and Caching in Named Data Networks” by Edmund Yeh, Tracey Ho, Ying Cui, Michael Burd, Ran Liu, Derek Leong presents a systematic framework for joint dynamic interest request forwarding and dynamic cache placement and eviction, within the context of the Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture.
- Poster: “Kite: A Mobility Support Scheme for NDN” poster by Yu Zhang, Hongli Zhang, and Lixia Zhan. KITE leverages the state of the Pending Interest Table (PIT) at each router to reach mobile nodes.
- Poster: “iSync: A High Performance and Scalable Data Synchronization Protocol for Named Data Networking” by Wenliang Fu, Hila Ben Abraham and Patrick Crowley.
- Poster: “Consumer-Producer API for Named Data Networking” by Ilya Moiseenko and Lixia Zhang
3. We want to remind project enthusiasts that we make monthly updates to the NDN Frequently Asked Questions.
4. In September we had a tremendous turnout at our first NDN Community Meeting that emphasized architecture, applications, and collaboration with over 100 participants in attendance. We are still compiling the NDN Community Meeting Report and expect a draft 15 November 2014. Given the success of the first NDN Community Meeting, we plan to hold the 2015 NDN Community Meeting sometime in August.
5. Mark your calendars for 5-6 February 2015 when we plan to hold the next NDN Project Retreat. We will host the retreat again on the University of California at San Diego campus in La Jolla, CA. This retreat will host deep dive technical discussions. Watch this space for more specifics on the upcoming retreat’s agenda.
In addition to the ICN tutorial and papers above:
- NDNFS: An NDN-friendly File System by Wentao Shang, Zhe Wen, Qiuhan Ding, Alexander Afanasyev, and Lixia Zhang. NDN, Technical Report NDN-0027, Revision 1: October 27, 2014.
- Named Data Networking “Next Phase”: Network Environments presentation by Jeff Burke at the May 19 2014 NSF FIA-NP Meeting
- NDN Open mHealth Use Case Scenario for 2014: NDNEx – Physical Activity Data Ecosystem slides by Jeff Burke August 12 2014
7. On August 25, 2014 we released Version 0.3 of the NDN Platform codebase. The release includes platform documentation, the NDN Forwarding Daemon (NFD), the ndn-cxx C++ library, the NDN Common Client library suite (NDN-CCL), the Named Data Link State Routing Protocol (NLSR), the next generation of ND repository (repo-ng), a ping application, a traffic generator, and a packet capture and analysis tool for NDN networks.
8. We started the 2014-2015 NDN Seminar series. The first Seminar was held Tuesday 4 November 2014 at 3:30pm (CT), 1:30pm (PT) and featured speaker Jeff Burke on “BOSS: Building Operating System Services“.
If you would like to be included in the NDN Seminars, please contact Jongdeog Lee
