MAP-Me: Managing Anchor-less Producer Mobility in Content-Centric Networks

Abstract

Mobility has become a basic premise of network communications, thereby requiring a native integration into 5G networks. Despite numerous efforts to propose and standardize effective mobility-management models for IP, the result is a complex, poorly flexible set of mechanisms. The natural support for mobility offered by ICN (Information Centric Networking) makes it a good candidate to define a radically new solution relieving limitations of the traditional approaches. If consumer mobility is supported in ICN by design, in virtue of its connectionless pull-based communication model, producer mobility is still an open challenge. In this work, we look at two prominent ICN architecture, CCN (Content Centric Networking) and NDN (Named Data Networking) and we propose MAP-Me, an anchor-less solution to manage micro-mobility of content producers via a name- based CCN/NDN data plane, with support for latency-sensitive streaming applications. We analyze MAP-Me performance and provide guarantees of correctness, stability, and bounded stretch, which we verify on real ISP topologies. Finally, we set up a comprehensive simulation environment in NDNSim 2.1 for MAP-Me evaluation and comparison with different classes of solution. We cover a wide range of topologies, mobility models and radio conditions, and conclude with a realistic trace-driven car-mobility pattern under a 802.11n radio access. The results are encouraging and highlight MAP-Me characteristics and efficiency in terms of user performance and network cost metrics. All the code is available as open-source.

Simple and efficient ICN network virtualization with vICN

Abstract

Information-Centric Networking (ICN) has been proposed as an alternative to IP for future networks such as 5G. To speed up its development and adoption, researchers and engineers require testing tools that are both simple and scalable. In particular, it is crucial to be able to quickly deploy ICN-enabled network topologies in a flexible and efficient manner. In this demonstration, we showcase vICN (virtualized ICN), a platform that enables easy deployment, orchestration and management of ICN networks. vICN uses standard virtualization technologies such as Linux Containers (LXC) and is fully integrated with the CICN suite to enable flexible testing of ICN technologies on general-purpose hardware. Furthermore, it can perform live monitoring and modification of the network. In particular, we use vICN to deploy a simple topology that consists of 9 nodes. We show that vICN bootstraps the topology in about 60s on commodity hardware. We then demonstrate how vICN interacts with the virtualized network and how it can be used for easy experimentation.

Secure producer mobility in information-centric network

Abstract

One of the fundamental requirements of next generation 5G networks is the support for seamless mobility over an heterogeneous access network by design. The shift from host-based to content-based location-independent communication makes Information-Centric Networking (ICN) an appealing technology to provide not only mobility, but security and storage as native properties of the network architecture. Previous work in ICN literature has focused on name-based mobility management solutions and particularly on the challenges of producer mobility, which involves an interaction between forwarding and control plane. In this paper, we consider the security implications of producer mobility in ICN and highlight the importance of securing producer to network interactions to avoid any sort of cyber attack potentially leading to denial of service. To this aim, we propose a fully distributed and very low-overhead protocol for name prefix attestation in the network based on hash-chaining. First results show a significant improvement in verification latency of order of magnitudes with respect to signature verification.

Enhancing Mobile Video Delivery over an Heterogeneous Network Access with Information-Centric Networking

Abstract

Mobile video delivery drives Internet traffic evolution and puts colossal pressure on future 5G networks to support higher quality and lower latency requirements over an increasingly heterogeneous network access. Future Internet paradigms recentering communication around content, such as Information Centric Networks (ICN), appear as promising candidates to relieve the challenges of a mobility-robust, efficient and cost-effective video delivery, by integrating video-awareness at network layer. In this demo, we focus on ICN-enabled Dynamic Adaptive Streaming (DAS) over an heterogeneous wireless access. We integrate ICN capabilities in DAS clients requesting 4K video content to standard DAS servers. We deploy a virtualized ICN-enabled network slice using LXC containers to connect clients to servers through an heterogeneous wireless access (802.11n and LTE emulated radios) and a simplified backhaul. The contribution of the demo is twofold. First it showcases what ICN can bring to DAS over a mobile heterogeneous access in virtue of its content-awareness at network layer. Second, it offers to the user a rich sandbox where several state-of-the-art DAS controllers are implemented and can be tested over ICN or standard TCP.

Virtualized ICN (vICN): towards a unified network virtualization framework for ICN experimentation

Abstract

To assess the feasibility and potential for deployment of new networking paradigms such as ICN, being able to carry out large scale experimentation and tests in real operational networks is crucial. Various platforms have been developed by the research community to support design and evaluation of specific aspects of ICN architecture. Most of them provide ICN-dedicated, small scale or application-specific environments and ad-hoc testing tools, non reusable in other contexts nor in real-world IP deployments. The goal of this paper is to contribute vICN (virtualized ICN), a unified open-source framework for network configuration and management that uses recent progresses in resource isolation and virtualization techniques. It offers a single, flexible and scalable platform to serve different purposes, ranging from reproducible large-scale research experimentation, to demonstrations with emulated and/or physical devices and network resources and to real deployments of ICN in existing IP networks. In the paper, we describe the rationale for vICN and its components, highlighting programmability, scalability and reliability as its core principles. Illustration of vICN properties is provided through concrete examples.

Measurement-Based Admission Control for Flow-Aware Implicit Service Differentiation

Abstract

It has previously been shown that the combined use of fair queuing and admission control would allow the Internet to provide satisfactory quality of service for both streaming and elastic flows without explicitly identifying traffic classes. In this paper we discuss the design of the required measurement based admission control (MBAC) scheme. The context is different to that of previous work on MBAC in that there is no prior knowledge of flow characteristics and there is a twofold objective: to maintain adequate throughput for elastic flows and to ensure low packet latency for any flow whose peak rate is less than a given threshold. In the paper we consider the second objective assuming realistically that most elastic and streaming flows are rate limited. We propose an MBAC algorithm and evaluate its performance by simulation under different stationary traffic mixes and in a flash crowd scenario. The algorithm is shown to offer a satisfactory compromise between flow performance and link utilization.
