  author={Muhammad Bilal and S. Pack},
  journal={IEEE Systems Journal},
The benefits of the ubiquitous caching in information centric networking (ICN) are profound; even though such features make ICN promising for content distribution, but it also introduces a challenge to content protection against the unauthorized access. The protection of a content against unauthorized access requires consumer authentication and involves the conventional end-to-end encryption. However, in ICN, such end-to-end encryption makes the content caching ineffective since encrypted… Expand
