My research interests lie in the field of computer networks and computer/network security. In the past years, my research focused on future Internet architectures, such as Named Data Networking (NDN), that shift from naming computer addresses to naming content items. This content-centric approach takes the HTTP abstraction down to the network layer, and it aims to forward, route, and cache packets according to the name of the content they carry.
My dissertation explores how the change in the network abstraction —from the channel abstraction in IP to the request for named data abstraction in NDN— impacts applications running on top of it. Our work introduces Information-Centric Transport (ICT) as an abstraction and a distributed mechanism that can be used by NDN applications.
