Secure Content Centric Mobile Network (SECON)

New wireless technologies allow mobile users to have easy access to real time data, and stay connected with friends, colleagues, & business partners. However emerging applications are usually data-centric but existing IP oriented paradigms are not flexible enough to support this. To support emerging mobile applications, we are developing a next generation mobile network that supports mobile content centric networking features, namely (a) intentional named message delivery, (b) content-centric security, (c) push-pull based data disseminations.

In our new SECON network, users can send User Interest (UI) packets to Content Resolution Server (CRS) to request for content data (CD) packets associated with a particular URI. The UIs will be forwarded by the receiving CRS to other CRSes that know who will be publishing content packets related to that URI. The UIs can also have intentional-named destinations e.g. all CRSes within a certain geographical area. In addition content publishers can send content publish announcements to CRSes before they forward content data packets to these CRSes. We have a preliminary prototype that supports UI, CPA & CD features. More features will be added in the near future.
