“NSC – Named Service Calls, or a Remote Procedure Call for NDN”
by Daniel Meirovitch and Lixia Zhang
NDN Technical Report, NDN-0074, Revision 1
Named Data Networking (NDN) is a potential new internet architecture which has gained momentum due to its ability to enable applications in scenarios where the current IP net- works have struggled. Among these scenarios, mobile ad-hoc networks or delay tolerant networks. Existing applications and systems make heavy use of remote procedure calls, or RPCs, to enable more complex applications. Designing a framework for remote code execution in NDN could ease development of applications and systems in NDN. Named Service Call (NSC) answers how to securely process client re- quests, and timely inform the client of their results within an NDN architecture.
