This report summarizes our accomplishments during the second year of the Named Data Networking Next Phase (NDN-NP) project (the 5th year of the overall project. This phase of the project focuses on deploying and evaluating the NDN architecture in four environments: building automation management systems, mobile health, multimedia real-time conferencing tools, and scientific data applications. Implementation and testing of pilot applications in these network environments further demonstrated our research progress in namespace design, trust management, and encryption-based access control. Highlights from this year include:
We are pleased to announce the first NDNcomm meeting, hosted by UCLA on September 4-5, 2014. This two-day meeting, the first in a series of meetings, will provide an opportunity to discuss existing capabilities and potential opportunities for the NDN software platform to serve the scientific research community.
Our goals for this meeting are (to be refined based on community input):
- elaborate on the current state of the NDN software platform and supporting libraries and applications
- describe state of current operational NDN testbed, and how to participate
- showcase external research using the NDN software platform and testbed
- debate existing and proposed functionality to support security and privacy at different layers of the architecture
- share examples of educational use of NDN, including tutorial material
- provide a forum to guide the evolution of the NDN architecture, key implementation artifacts including APIs, and to provide feedback proposing potential changes based on implementation and deployment experience
- discuss a vision/roadmap for the community interested in advancing NDN deployment and usability, and how to accelerate deployment, both from research and commercial perspectives
- provide an opportunity for interested members of the community to engage in hands-on-training to use NDN software or testbed platforms
