OSPFN: An OSPF Based Routing Protocol for Named Data Networking by Lan Wang, A K M Mahmudul Hoque, Cheng Yi, Adam Alyyan, and Beichuan Zhang
NDN Technical Report NDN-0003, July 2012.
Named Data Networking (NDN) is a new data-centric network architecture. In NDN, users send Interest messages to retrieve data by their names. Since the Interest messages do not contain source or destination addresses, routers need to forward them based on the names carried in the messages. In order to provide name-based routing capability in NDN, we have extended OSPF to distribute name prexes and calculate routes to name prexes. Our protocol OSPFN is currently deployed in the NDN testbed. This report describes our design, implementation, deployment, and future work.
