Extended abstract for poster. ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking (ICN), September 2014.
Named Data Networking (NDN) natively supports the mobility of data consumers through its data-centric design and stateful forwarding plane. However, the mobility support for data producers remains open in the original proposal. In this paper, we introduce Kite, a design of mobility support for NDN. Kite leverages the state of the Pending Interest Table (PIT) at each router to reach mobile nodes. We describe how Kite can support typical scenarios including group communications among mobiles.
