Information Centric Networking (ICN) has shown possibilities to solve several problems of the Internet. At the same time, some problems need to be tackled in order to advance this promising architecture. In this paper, the authors address two of the problems, namely routing and content caching. For the routing, they introduce the Potential Based Routing (PBR) to achieve several design goals such as availability, adaptability, diversity, and robustness. In addition, they examine the performance of a random caching policy which can be a promising candidate for ICN. The integrated system which combines the PBR and a caching policy is named the Cache Aware Target idenTification (CATT).
