Towards a Flexible Resource Management System for Content Centric Networking
Content Centric Networking (CCN) is a new and promising architecture that can provide better security and much improved content delivery service than the current Internet. Each router in CCN has a content store that caches objects according to a replacement algorithm and a pending interest table that stores pending requests waiting for matching objects. The authors propose a novel and flexible resource management system where the content store can store objects as well as pending requests. To each pending request, they add control fields that can be used to control caching resources according to a given objective function.
