Philipp Moll, Varun Patil, Nishant Sabharwal, Lixia Zhang, “A Brief Introduction to State Vector Sync”, NDN Technical Report, NDN-0073, Revision 2, July 2021

This report provides a brief introduction to State Vector Sync (SVS), a sync protocol for Named Data Networking (NDN). To support distributed applications, sync protocols synchronize the data names of a shared dataset among a group of participants. In this report, we explain how the SVS design is influenced by the lessons that have been cumulated over previous sync protocol designs and describe the protocol and its functions to allow experimentation with the SVS library implementations.
