NDN Project Monthly Newsletter for July 2015

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.

Community Outreach

  • Plans continue for the NDN Community Meeting (NDNcomm 2015) at the University of California at Los Angeles campus in the Little Theater, Macgowan Hall, UCLA on 28-29 September 2015. Registration is open on the website.
  • Hackathon: 26-27 September 2015. We are excited to announce the first NDN hackathon scheduled prior to the upcoming NDNcomm 2015. The organizers welcome participants across all experience levels and are reaching out to the community for project suggestions. If you have an idea for a project, please email ndncomm2015-hackathon@named-data.net
  • Project representatives will pitch their ideas to hackathon attendees and act as guides/mentors. We also plan projects suitable for NDN newcomers. Please stay tuned to http://www.caida.org/workshops/ndn/1509/#hackathon. We hope to see you in LA!

Technical News

  • We announced the release of version 0.3.3 of Named Data Networking Forwarding Daemon (NFD) and ndn-cxx library.  Please find detailed release notes on NFD and release notes on dn-cxx library
    More details about NFD, source code, install instructions, tutorials, HOWTOs, a FAQ and other useful resources are available on the official NFD webpage and ndn-cxx webpage. The latest version of NFD developer’s guide is also updated.
  • New support in NDN-CPP for asynchronous I/O using the Boost ASIO io_service for processing events in a thread-safe way.The NDN-CPP client library now optionally supports Boost’s ASIO for more CPU-efficient asynchronous I/O and to make library calls thread-safe. For more details, see this announcement post.
  • We are pleased to announce the initial release of Mini-NDN (v0.1.0), a lightweight networking emulation tool that enables testing, experimentation, and research on the NDN platform. See detailed Mini-NDN release notes.  More information about Mini-NDN, tutorials, installation and configuration guides, and documentation are available at the Mini-NDN Github repository.

NDN Publications, Presentations, and Technical Reports

  • We are pleased to report four papers, covering a wide spectrum of topics from applications to API to security to scalable forwarding, accepted to the 2nd ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking (ICN 2015) to be held Sep 30 – Oct 2 2015 in San Francisco, CA.
    1. I. Moiseenko, L. Wang, L. Zhang, “Consumer / Producer communication with application level framing in Named Data Networking”.
    2. T. Song, H. Yuan, P. Crowley, B. Zhang, “Scalable Name-Based Packet Forwarding: From Millions to Billions”.
    3. Y. Yu, A. Afanasyev, D. Clark, k. claffy, V. Jacobson, L. Zhang, “Schematizing and Automating Trust in Named Data Networking”.
    4. P. Gusev, J. Burke, “NDN-RTC: Real-time videoconferencing over Named Data Networking”.
  • NDN TR-33 Revision 1: P. Gusev and J. Burke, “NDN-RTC: Real-time videoconferencing over Named Data Networking” presents the design, implementation in C++, and testing of NDN-RTC on the NDN testbed, using a demonstration GUI conferencing application, NdnCon. This report is the submitted version of the ICN paper listed above.

NDN Seminars

  • Our NDN Seminar series continued during July. The NDN seminars are internally focused. We usually hold these seminars on Wednesday from 2-3p (PST). So, if you would like to be included in the NDN Seminars, please contact Jongdeog Lee <jlee700@illinois.edu> for the most up-to-date information regarding upcoming seminars.
  • July 15th Ashlesh Gawande (Univ. of Memphis) presented: Mini-NDN: A light weight emulation tool for Named Data Networking
