A Chunk Caching Location and Searching Scheme in Content Centric Networking
Content Centric Networking (CCN) is a new network infrastructure around content dissemination and retrieval, shift from host addresses to named data. Each CCN router has a cache to store the chunks passed by it. Therefore the caching strategy about chunk placement can greatly affect the whole CCN performance. This paper proposes an implicit coordinate chunk Caching Location and Searching scheme (CLS) in CCN hierarchical infrastructure. In CLS, there is at most one copy of a chunk cached on the path between a server and a leaf router. This copy is pulled down one level towards the leaf router by a request or pushed up one level towards the server by the cache eviction.
