In the future Internet, routing on contents or resources is anticipated as the post-Internet Protocol (IP) routing. The final goal of the authors' research is to realize routing based on the name of a resource in the network layer. Towards this purpose, they use the 'Name' for routing, particularly the 'Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN)' to show the feasibility of name-based routing and to generalize it to resource-based routing. When writing the routing information of hierarchically structured FQDN into a hierarchical virtual topology, mismatch between the virtual topology and physical topology can occur if the virtual topology lacks the physical topology's information.
