description

Content-centric networking (CCN) is a change in network architecture to make content retrieval by name, not location, the fundamental operation of the network. CCN's approach is to reuse and build upon successful features of TCP/IP, with the key change of replacing the machine-oriented IP model with a named content model as the basis for the central protocol that connects networks.

Using new approaches to routing named content -- similar to IP routing -- and including integrated content-based security, CCN can achieve scalability, security, and performance in a single unified solution to myriad networking problems.
