Multi-Flow Congestion Control with Network Assistance, Yannis Thomas, George Xylomenos, Christos Tsilopoulos, George C. Polyzos, In proceedings of IFIP Networking 2016, Vienna, Austria, 2016

A well-known technique for enhancing the performance and stability of content distribution is the use of multiple dissemination flows. Multipath TCP (MPTCP), the most popular multiflow protocol on the Internet, allows receivers to exploit multiple paths towards a single sender. Nevertheless, MPTCP cannot fully exploit the potential gains of multipath connectivity, as it must fairly share resources with (single-flow) TCP, without a clear understanding of whether the available paths do share any bottleneck links. In this paper, we introduce a hybrid congestion control algorithm for multisource and multipath transport that enables higher bandwidth utilization compared to MPTCP, while remaining friendly to TCP-like flows. Our solution employs (i) an in-network module that offers essential topological information and (ii) Normalized Multiflow Congestion Control (NMCC), a novel end-to-end congestion control algorithm. While NMCC is architecture-independent and the in-network module can be adapted for Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) or Software Defined Networks (SDNs), our prototype was implemented on the Publish-Subscribe Internetworking (PSI) architecture, which offers centralized path formation and source routing. Using an actual protocol implementation deployed on our test-bed, we provide experimental results which validate the effectiveness of our design in terms of performance, adaptation to shifting network conditions and friendliness to other flows.

Towards Disruption Tolerant ICN Hasan M A Islam, Andrey Lukyanenko, Sasu Tarkoma, and Antti Yla-Jaaski, ISCC2015, Cyprus, 6-9 July 2015

In this paper, we design a protocol stack referred as CCNDTN which integrates DTN (Delay Tolerant Networking) architecture in the native CCN (Content Centric Network) to deal with network disruption. We also present the implementation details of the proposed CCNDTN

Object-oriented Packet Caching for ICN (I-CAN project), Yannis Thomas, George Xylomenos, Christos Tsilopoulos, George C. Polyzos ACM ICN 2015 , San Francisco, Sep. 30 – Oct. 2, 2015

One of the most discussed features offered by Information-centric Networking (ICN) architectures is the ability to support packet-level caching at every node in the network. By individually naming each packet, ICN allows routers to turn their queueing buffers into packet caches, thus exploiting the network’s existing storage resources. However, the performance of packet caching at commodity routers is restricted by the small capacity of their SRAM, which holds the in- dex for the packets stored at the, slower, DRAM. We therefore propose Object-oriented Packet Caching (OPC), a novel caching scheme that overcomes the SRAM bottleneck, by combining object-level indexing in the SRAM with packet-level storage in the DRAM. We implemented OPC and ex perimentally evaluated it over various cache placement policies, showing that it can enhance the impact of ICN packet-level caching, reducing both network and server load.

IP Over ICN – The Better IP?, D. Trossen, M. Reed, J. Riihijärvi, M. Georgiades, G. Xylomenos, N. Fotiou, EuCNC (European Conference on Networks and Communications), Paris, France, June 29/July 2, 2015.

This paper presents a proposition for information centric networking (ICN) that lies outside the typical trajectory of aiming for a wholesale replacement of IP as the internetworking layer of the Internet. Instead, we propose that a careful exploitation of key ICN benefits, expanding previously funded ICN efforts, will enable individual operators to improve the performance of their IP-based services along many dimensions. Alongside the main motivation for our work, we present an early strawman architecture for such an IP-over-ICN proposition, which will ultimately be implemented and trialled in a recently started H2020 research effort.

Resistance Against Brute-Force Attacks on Stateless Forwarding in Information Centric Networking, Bander A. Alzahrani, Martin J. Reed, Vassilios G. Vassilakis, ANCS (ACM/IEEE Symposium on Architectures for Networking and Communications Systems), Oakland, California, May 7-8 2015

This paper demonstrates how denial of service can be essentially removed in ICN networks. In conventional IP networks it is possible to send packets to any Internet connected device. In an ICN network it is (in theory) only possible to send traffic to a device that specifically subscribes to receive the data. In practice ICN frameworks have not necessarily stopped the transmission of DoS traffic. Here we show how it can be stopped.
