This paper presents the design and implementation of the Intentional Naming System (INS), a resource discovery and service location system for dynamic and mobile networks of devices and computers. Such environments require a naming system that is (i) expressive, to describe and make requests based on specific properties of services, (ii) responsive, to(More)
Today's Internet naming scheme, the Domain Name System [28], implicitly assumes that applications want to reach an address, where the address signifies location in the network topology. Typically, applications desire either information or functionality, and do not often know the best network location that satisfies their needs. We argue that current efforts(More)
Most network naming schemes force applications to specify the network location of resources they wish to use.

We argue that applications should be able to simply describe their needs in an intentional name, and that the network(More)
