Abstract
Network measurement is a critical element in networks but it has largely been an afterthought and inadequately secured. With the emergence of Information-Centric Networking technologies, specifically the popular open source Named-Data Networking (NDN), there is the early stage opportunity to create a useful and flexible network measurement system that can accommodate a range of network probes. This proposal’s objective is development of a prototype distributed Network Measurement System (NMS) that leverages the NDN architecture to ensure privacy of data and role-based authorization of entities in the NMS. The NMS can be deployed in devices with an NDN Forwarding Daemon (NFD) within an all-NDN network or as an overlay measurement system in an IP network. NDN-specific performance probes will be developed. Collaboration with NIST personnel is desired to achieve maximum impact.
