V. Jacobson, J. Burke, L. Zhang, T. Abdelzaher, B. Zhang, k. claffy, P. Crowley, J. Halderman, C. Papadopoulos, and L. Wang, “Named Data Networking Next Phase (NDN-NP) Project May 2015 – April 2016 Annual Report”, Tech. rep., Named Data Networking (NDN), Jun 2016.

This report summarizes our accomplishments during the second year of the Named Data Networking Next Phase (NDN-NP) project (the 5th year of the overall project. This phase of the project focuses on deploying and evaluating the NDN architecture in four environments: building automation management systems, mobile health, multimedia real-time conferencing tools, and scientific data applications. Implementation and testing of pilot applications in these network environments further demonstrated our research progress in namespace design, trust management, and encryption-based access control. Highlights from this year include:

Technical News

  • The NDN Testbed has grown to 31 Nodes with 84 links. Since our last newsletter, four new sites have connected to the NDN Testbed; University of Goettingen, University of Indonesia, Osaka University, and the University of Minho in Portugal. See the complete list at http://named-data.net/ndn-testbed/.
  • We released version 0.4.0 of Named Data Networking Forwarding Daemon (NFD) and ndn-cxx library. Please see the detailed release notes for NFD and the release notes for ndn-cxx library.  More details about NFD, source code, install instructions, tutorials, HOWTOs, a FAQ and other useful resources are available on the official webpages of NFD and ndn-cxx.
  • We announced the release of version 0.2.2 of Named Data Link State Routing Protocol (NLSR). Detailed release notes for NLSR are available. More information about NLSR, tutorials, installation and configuration guides, and other useful resources are available on the official webpage of NLSR.
  • We published the alpha version of NFD on Android to Google Play store, based on the recently released NFD version 0.4.0. This first release has limited documentation. We welcome help in any form: bug reports and feature requests submitted to redmine, patches, bug fixes, feature implementations, documentation and updates. To opt-in to the alpha testing and to download the NFD app, open https://play.google.com/apps/testing/net.named_data.nfd on your Android device.

  • We published the “The Second Named Data Networking Community Meeting (NDNcomm 2015)“, a brief summary of the second NDN Community Meeting held at UCLA in Los Angeles, California on September 28-29, 2015. The meeting provided a platform for the attendees from 49 institutions across 13 countries to exchange their recent NDN research and development results, to debate existing and proposed functionality in NDN forwarding, routing, and security, and to provide feedback to the NDN architecture design evolution.
  • The NDN project team has submitted a Letter of Intent to the NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research (I/UCRC) program, to explore this as a potential evolutionary path for the NDN consortium, as discussed at the last consortium meeting. According to the RFP, this program develops long-term partnerships among industry, academe, and government. “The Centers are catalyzed by an investment from the [NSF] and are primarily supported by industry Center members, with NSF taking a supporting role in the development and evolution of the Center.” See more information on the program. The project team plans to submit a planning grant to the July 11, 2016 deadline and encourages current and prospective members to contact us with any questions, concerns, ideas and expressions of interest about the program. We have received positive feedback from NSF to encourage the planning proposal submission.

Technical News

  • The NDN Testbed has grown to 28 Nodes with 66 links. Since our last newsletter, two new countries connected to the NDN Testbed. We added nodes at COPELABS (Cognition and People Centric Computing) at University of Lusofona in Portugal and at the University of Indonesia, Depok Indonesia. The NDN Testbed now spans 11 countries: USA, Switzerland, China, France, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Norway, Portugal, and Spain. See the latest map with bandwidth usage.
  • We announced the release of Mini-NDN v0.1.1. Mini-NDN is a lightweight networking emulation tool that enables testing, experimentation, and research on the NDN platform. Mini-NDN uses the NDN libraries, NFD, NLSR, and tools released by the NDN project to emulate an NDN network on a single system. See the detailed release notes with new features, changes, and bug fixes.More information about Mini-NDN, tutorials, installation and configuration guides, and documentation are available at the Mini-NDN Github repository.
