DNS Modifications for Real-World ICN Benefits

  • Satzke K.

ICN promises benefits to users and service providers along several dimensions, including lower response time, nearest-replica routing, intrinsic content integrity without external network-level indicators, location-independent naming and improved support for mobility. Unfortunately these benefits come at a non-trivial cost as many ICN proposals call for adding significant complexity to the network, e.g. by having routers serve as content caches and support nearest-replica routing, or replacing IP routing entirely. Moreover, many open questions regarding content naming, caching, routing, security, discovery and scalability remain that must be solved before any proposal can be considered as mature enough to be deployed at Internet scale. This paper is driven by the question of whether an evolutionary path can be found towards implementing Internet-scale ICN systems based on modifications to the DNS to achieve scalable ICN routing with location-independent naming using a mapping approach and leveraging infrastructure elements existing today. An analytical model to investigate the scaling properties is proposed, and ICN performance parameters are evaluated.

  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
