Future Internet resources include many physical and conceptual resources, which can be described and documented by structured data. They can even publish themselves structured data on the Web. These new actors will raise significant challenges to adapt linkage mechanisms between datasets on a larger scale and implement them as part of the Future Internet infrastructure. The authors illustrate the potential role of linked data in the Future Internet, together with content centric networks and content objects. They emphasize the importance of linkage aspects and suggest new possibilities to support data linkage, in particular by embedding linkage behaviors as properties of future Internet resources.
