description

Computer networking originated as a way to share scarce resources (tape drives, printers, special-purpose CPUs, …) and the host/port abstraction of TCP/IP is just what it took to extend an I/O channel from machine room to planetary scale. Today the overwhelming use of networking is to move content (email, web pages, video, …). But while the problem has changed our solution hasn’t: We still map content identifiers to hosts and ports for transport.

I’ll try to show you that named content is a more appropriate abstraction for the networking we do today, and that a communication architecture based solely on named content is simpler, more expressive, more efficient, more scalable and far more secure than anything we currently use.
