Traffic and resource management in content-centric networks : design and evaluation

Abstract : The advent of the World Wide Web has radically changed Internet usage from host-to-host to service access and data retrieval. The majority of services used by Internet’s clients are content-centric (e.g. web). However, the original Internet revolves around host-to-host communication for which it was conceived. Even if Internet has been able to address the challenges offered by new applications, there is an evident mismatch between the architecture and its current usage. Many projects in national research agencies propose to redesign the Internet architecture around named data. Such research efforts are identified under the name of Information Centric Networking. This thesis focuses on the Content-Centric Networking (CCN) proposition. We first analyze the CCN communication model with particular focus on the bandwidth and storage sharing performance, We compute closed formulas for data delivery time, that we use in the second part of the thesis as guideline for network protocol design. Second, we propose some CCN congestion control and forwarding mechanisms. We present a first window based receiver driven flow control protocol, Interest Control Protocol (ICP). We also introduce a hop-by-hop congestion control mechanism to obtain early congestion detection and reaction. We then extend the original ICP congestion control protocol implementing a Remote Adaptive Active Queue Management mechanism in order to efficiently exploit heterogeneous (joint/disjoint) network paths. Finally, we introduce a distributed forwarding mechanism that bases its decisions on per prefix and per interface quality measurement without impacting the system scalability.
