Content-Centric Networking - Architectural Overview and Protocol Description

M. Mosko, I. Solis, and C. A. Wood




This document describes the core concepts of the CCNx architecture and presents a minimum network protocol based on two messages: Interests and Content Objects. It specifies the set of mandatory and optional fields within those messages and describes their behavior and interpretation. This architecture and protocol specification is independent of a specific wire encoding.
