In this paper, we propose a novel secure content delivery framework, for an information-centric network, which will enable content providers (e.g., Netflix and Youtube) to securely disseminate their content to legitimate users via content distribution networks (CDNs) and Internet service providers (ISPs). Use of our framework will enable legitimate users to(More)
Internet traffic is increasingly becoming multimedia-centric. Its growth is driven by the fast-growing mobile user base that is more interested in the content rather than its origin. These trends have motivated proposals for a new Internet networking paradigm information-centric networking (ICN). This paradigm requires unique names for packets to leverage(More)
Information-Centric Networking (ICN) replaces the widely used host-centric networking paradigm in communication networks (e.g., Internet, mobile ad hoc networks) with an information-centric paradigm, which prioritizes the delivery of named content, oblivious of the contents’ origin. Content and client security, provenance, and identity privacy are intrinsic(More)
Caching strategies in Information-Centric Networks (ICNs) can be classified into the categories of individual caching, on-path caching, and collaborative caching. Each has several drawbacks, such as high content redundancy in individual caching, unutilized caching capacity in on-path caching, and high coordination cost in collaborative caching. Despite the(More)
The fast-growing Internet traffic is increasingly becoming content-based and driven by mobile users, with users more interested in data rather than its source. This has precipitated the need for an information-centric Internet architecture. Research in information-centric networks (ICNs) have resulted in novel architectures, e.g., CCN/NDN, DONA, and(More)
The shift from the host-centric to the information-centric paradigm results in many benefits including native security, enhanced mobility, and scalability. The corresponding information-centric networking (ICN), also presents several important challenges, such as closest replica routing, client privacy, and client preference collection. The majority of(More)
Coupled with the rapid increase in mobile device users and the bandwidth and latency demands are the continuous increase of devices' processing capabilities, storage, and wireless connectivity options. The multiple radio access technology (multi-RAT) is proposed to satisfy mobile users' increasing needs. The Information-Centric Networking (ICN) paradigm is(More)
