NDN Project Monthly Newsletter for December 2014

The NDN project team compiles and publishes this newsletter monthly 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.

  1. The NDN Community Workshop report for NDNcomm 2014 will be available in January.
  2. This month we welcome Intel Corporation to the NDN NP Consortium. Eve Schooler whom we have enjoyed at several of our NDN meetings will act as point of contact for Intel.
  3. We plan to hold the next NDN Project Technical Retreat on 5-6 February 2015 at the University of California, San Diego. This retreat will host deep dive technical discussions with a focus on security solution development for specific environments: http://www.caida.org/workshops/ndn/1502/ (Ask Lixia if you wonder whether you should attend. The next NDNcomm meeting will be of more general interest and be held September 2015.)

Technical News

  1. The NDN Testbed has grown to 22 Nodes and 50 links. We have nodes in China, Japan, South Korea, France, Switzerland, Spain and the US. The most recent addition was Anyang University in South Korea.

    To see the latest information, check the status page. To see the bandwidth usage, see the Bandwidth Map.

  2. Mini-ndn: a team of students lead by Lan Wang (U. Memphis), Christian Esteve Rothenberg (U. Campinas), and Beichuan Zhang (U. Arizona) are developing mini-ndn, a light-weight scalable emulation environment for NDN, based on software developed by Rothenberg and his students.

  3. Person-tracking data publisher prototype: UCLA REMAP prototyped a simple NDN publisher of 30-frame-per-second person tracking data integrated into an open source project started last year: http://openptrack.org/ that has several academic installations. It is built on the well-known Robot Operating System (ROS). More information on the namespace and approach can be found at https://github.com/named-data/ndn-opt/tree/master/publisher
  4. Support for Elliptic-curve keys in the NDN Common Client Libraries: In the NDN Common Client Libraries for C++ (NDN-CPP) and Java (jNDN), we have added support for Elliptic Curve (EC) keys. This includes encoding/decoding the TLV signature info SignatureSha256WithEcdsa. It also includes support for EC public and private keys to sign and verify. If you use the ndnsec command line tools to generate an EC keypair, the libraries can use them.

    As always, you can pull the latest code from GitHub: https://github.com/named-data/ndn-cpp https://github.com/named-data/jndn

    Support in Python (PyNDN) and JavaScript (NDN-JS) coming soon.

NDN Publications and Presentations

  1. To complement the existing NDN FAQ, we have started the NDN Video FAQ with three initial postings. The Video FAQ features [informal] on-camera answers to questions about NDN from faculty, students, staff, and industry colleagues.

    Current questions include answers from Patrick Crowley (WUSTL), Beichuan Zhang (U. Arizona), Alex Afanasyev (UCLA), Giovanni Pau (LIP6), Steve DiBenedetto (Colorado State), Jeff Thompson (UCLA), and Dave Oran (Cisco).

    We’ll update this list when new batches are posted. https://vimeo.com/channels/ndnvfaq

  2. Dr. Lan Wang, gave a talk entitled “NDN Architectural Development and Routing Design” at the Donaghey College of Information Science and Technology, U. Arkansas, Little Rock on Nov. 21, 2014.
  3. We urge folks to check the list of Named Data Networking project publications as we make regular updates to papers, technical reports, and project slide presentations.
  4. Last month we we reported on the September 2014, The 1st ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking (ICN) and apologize for failing to include Zhehao Wang’s poster: “Matryoshka: Design of NDN Multiplayer Online Game (Demo)“, by Zhehao Wang, Z. Qu, Jeff Burke.

NDN Seminars

  • Our NDN Seminar series has been rolling along with several presentations this past quarter. These seminars are internally focused. We usually hold these seminars on Tuesdays from 1:30p-2:30p (PST). So, if you would like to be included in the NDN Seminars, please contact Jongdeog Lee for the most up-to-date information regarding upcoming seminars. Recent seminars included:
    • NDN Seminar 4 November 2014 Jeff Burke – Building Operating System Services
    • NDN Seminar 13 November 2014 Jeff Burke NDNEx – Open mHealth Network Environment
    • NDN Seminar 25 November 2014 Dr. Syed Obaid Amin, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Memphis, gave spoke on hyperbolic routing performance.
