Creating A Secure, Integrated Home Network of Things with Named Data Networking

NDN, Technical Report NDN-0035, Revision 1: November 19, 2015.
The Internet of Things promises to connect appliances which may come from different manufacturers, with different processing capabilities, all providing different and possibly overlapping sets of services. The very personal nature of home network data and the narrow focus of each appliance also present unique challenges in network design. In this paper, we design a simple smart home network protocol to demonstrate the ways in which the Named Data Networking (NDN) internet layer protocol provides better support for these aspects of network protocol design than the traditional Internet Protocol (IP). We refer to this simple NDN-based protocol as the Named Data Network of Things (NDNoT).
