NDNBlue: NDN over Bluetooth by Arjun Attam, Ilya Moiseenko
NDN Technical Report NDN-0015, November 2013

Named Data Networking is a network protocol that in future is able to displace IP protocol from its current role of a dominating inter-networking layer and also to have an edge in such areas of networking as PAN (Personal Area Networking) where IP protocol has never been universally used. This project looks into the problem of fitting Named Data Networking request-response communication model into constrained Bluetooth networking stack for both mobile and desktop platforms. We provide a cross platform proxy layer, which works between NDN stack and Bluetooth stack to achieve NDN connectivity over Bluetooth links for multiple platforms.
