Consumer-Producer API for Named Data Networking

Extended abstract for poster. ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking (ICN), September 2014.
This paper presents a new network programming interface to NDN communication protocols and architectural modules. This new API is made of (1) a consumer context which associates a name prefix with consumer-specific data fetch parameters controlling Interest transmission and Data packet processing, and (2) a producer context which associates a name prefix with producer-specific data transfer parameters controlling Interests demultiplexing and Data packet production. Both API contexts are extensible to new functionalities once they are identified.
