description

It is becoming too costly to provision today’s networks for the rapidly increasing demands of digital content management and distribution. A new approach to networking is being developed at PARC. Content-centric networking changes the way we think about networking, simplifies how applications consume content, and enables applications and services to be designed in a way that more content can be delivered for far less cost. When it comes to privacy, it’s the data not the server endpoint that is encrypted. That gives the author the ability to say who’s allowed to view their work. Data is signed cryptographically, so there’s a notion of an identity provider, with the crypto key itself treated as just another content object. You, the content creator, manage and set identities for recipients of your data while CCN handles the encryption.
