A Survey of Information-Centric Networking

The development of the Information-Centric Networking (ICN) concept is one of the significant results of different international Future Internet research activities. In this concept, the principal paradigm is not end-to-end communication between hosts - as in the current Internet architecture. Instead, an increasing demand for highly scalable and efficient distribution of content has motivated the development of architectures that focus on information objects, their properties, and receiver interest in the network to achieve efficient and reliable distribution of such objects.
