Information-Centric Networking (ICN) has been proposed as an alternative paradigm for future Internet and promising to replace the current host-centric model. The communication in ICN is mainly based on the content name instead of using host addresses. Hence, the content is decoupled from its original location and may be cached in the network infrastructure. Also, the use of content-based security makes ICN a strong candidate for the future Internet, to fulfill user requirements, improve the content distribution, and the overall network performance. Under the concept of ICN, various architectures have been implemented such as Content-Centric Networking (CCN) and Named Data Networking (NDN). On the other hand, the Internet of Things (IoT) technology is being widely applied to diverse domain-applications including smart cities, smart homes, smart healthcare, smart grids, and smart transportation. Things in the IoT ecosystem can collect data, interconnect between each other and the Internet, processing and taking decisions without human interaction. IoT communications and applications are, in nature, information-based and follow content-oriented paradigm. Hence, ICN may show promising performance on IoT, and help to overcome different IoT challenges and application requirement including addressing, heterogeneity, mobility, security, and scalability.
Potential topics include but not limited to the following:
Advances architecture and application design for ICN-IoT.
