Automated tunneling over IP land: Run NDN Anywhere


Named Data Networking (NDN) proposes a fundamental architectural change to the Internet, moving from point-to-point communication to a data-centric model. NDN-enabled nodes can communicate over any substrate that can deliver datagrams, such as layer-2 links (WiFi, BLE, Ethernet, etc.) and IP/UDP/TCP tunnels over IP connectivity. However in the latter case, NDN-enabled nodes must be able to discover the presence of each other and the data each serves in an automated way. This poster describes the design of an NDN Neighbor Discovery service (NDND), which enables isolated NDN nodes to discover each other and interconnect through tunneling over IP connectivity.
