Bootstrapping a Publish/Subscribe Information Centric Network
In this paper, the authors focus on the bootstrap operation of a publish/subscribe information centric network. They consider a set of interconnected network nodes and describe how they organize themselves into a fully functional network by publishing and subscribing to control plane information. Network bootstrap includes establishing point-to-point communication between network elements, exchanging topological information and setting up the rendezvous system. They showcase the network's publish/subscribe service with a complete example. The tremendous growth of the Internet over the last decade has transformed it into a global network of information, diverging from its initial design goal of a resource sharing computer network.
