NDNDrop – Device Agnostic File Sharing Using NDN

Nishant Sabharwal, and Carlos Santillana

We explore the Named Data Networking architecture by designing a file sharing app which can share files utilizing the network layer. This app demonstrates the usefulness of the NDN architecture in a small, standalone application which is an important step before widespread adoption. The app also highlights the difficulties newcomers to NDN have in picking up the design principles and tools.
The application was written in C++ using the ndn-cxx library. A current copy of the code can be found at https://github.com/carlossantillana/ndn-drop
