This paper investigates data-oriented communication services design for Future Network. The authors provide initial design considerations in terms of advantages and applicability with some use cases. One of the problems of the current Internet design is information sender-driven: they are overly trusted, and the network accepts anything that the sender wants to send and will make a best effort to deliver it to the receiver. This has led to increasing problems with unsolicited traffic (e.g. spam e-mail) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, forcing companies and users to conceal their e-mail addresses and place their systems behind firewalls.
