Information-Centric networking (ICN) is the paradigm that is gaining traction as the paradigm for the Internet of tomorrow. This ICN paradigm is going to move the Internet architecture from being node-centric to being data-centric/name-centric. In our group we are investigating several aspects that are essential for this successful transition of the Internet.

  • Secure Content Delivery in the Information-Centric Internet
  • Investigating Caching as a core-component of the architecture
  • Addressing concerns with naming the data and the corresponding privacy implications

 

We are also exploring the use of the information-centric networking paradigm in other domains, such as mobile ad hoc networks, smartphone communication, and also in the smart grid.
