NDN Forwarding Daemon (NFD) is a network forwarder that implements the Named Data Networking (NDN) protocol. NFD is designed with modularity and extensibility in mind to enable easy experiments with new protocol features, algorithms , and applications for NDN. To help developers extend and improve NFD, this document explains NFD's internals including the(More)
—Named Data Networking (NDN) is a recently proposed general-purpose network architecture that leverages the strengths of Internet architecture while aiming to address its weaknesses. NDN names packets rather than end-hosts, and most of NDN's characteristics are a consequence of this fact. In this paper, we focus on the packet forwarding model of NDN. Each(More)
Named-based packet forwarding represents a core characteristic of many information-centric networking architectures. IP-inspired forwarding methods are not suitable because a) name-based forwarding must support variable-length keys of unbounded length, and b) namespaces for data are substantially larger than the global address prefix rulesets used in(More)
Recently, energy expenditures of the Internet have increased dramatically, raising energy issue of routers an urgent problem in relative research areas. In fact, much device surplus and redundancy are introduced during network planning for rarely appeared traffic peak hours and device failures, wasting energy most of the time. In this work, an energy-aware(More)
