USITS 2001 Abstract
An Architecture for Content Routing Support in the Internet
Mark Gritter and David R. Cheriton, Stanford University
The primary use of the Internet is content distribution -- the delivery
of web pages, audio, and video to client applications --
yet the Internet was never architected for scalable content delivery.
The result has been a proliferation of proprietary protocols and
ad hoc mechanisms to meet growing content demand.
In this paper, we describe a content routing design based on
name-based routing as part of an explicit Internet
content layer. We claim that this content routing is a natural
extension of current Internet directory and routing systems,
allows efficient content location,
and can be implemented to scale with the Internet.
