Abstract : Named-Data Networking (NDN) is a novel clean-slate architecture for Future Internet. It has been designed to take into account a new use of the Internet and especially accessing content for a large number of users, and it integrates several features such as in-network caching, security or multipath. As NDN relies on content names instead of host address, it cannot rely on traditional Internet routing, and it is therefore essential to propose a routing scheme adapted for NDN. To this end, in this paper, we present SRSC, our SDN-based Routing Scheme for CCN/NDN and its implementation. SRSC relies on the SDN paradigm.A controller is responsible to forward decisions and to set up rules into NDN nodes. We implement SRSC into NDNx and we also deploy an NDN testbed within a virtual environment and real ISP topology in order to evaluate the performances of our proposal with real-world experiments. We demonstrate the feasibility of SRSC and its ability to forward Interest messages in a fully deployed NDN environment, while keeping low overhead and computation time and high caching performances.
