Project CCNx – Content-Centric Networking

Project CCNx™ is an open source project exploring the next step in networking, based on one fundamental architectural change: replacing named hosts with named content as the primary abstraction.

CCNx was launched with ideas from PARCs Content-Centric Networking CCN research program.  The PARC CCN architecture takes content as a primitive and decouples location from identity, security, and access, with no concept of host/machine at the lowest level.  We believe that such a focus on what not where addresses todays communication problems better than the traditional model of packet networking, yet can preserve design decisions that made TCP/IP simple, robust, and scalable.  Project CCNx is a vehicle for sharing these ideas with the research community.
