InfoNames: An Information-Based Naming Scheme for Multimedia Content

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Recent proposals have argued for data-centric mechanisms that decouple data delivery from the sources of the data and the transfer protocols. The authors take this idea to its logical completion and argue for enabling content distribution schemes to name and query directly for the underlying information. The motivation for this information-aware design is that they see a proliferation of diverse producers of multimedia content offering varying presentation modes and significant heterogeneity in the operating conditions of Internet-enabled devices that seek access to such multimedia content.
