Back in 2006 we published a paper titled "Security Through Publicity" in the First USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Security. 10 years down the road, this notion is widely applied to address Internet security, e.g. see Certificate Transparency.
See one of our latest papers Sharing mHealth Data via Named Data Networking presented at ACM ICN, September 2016.
October 2015: Alex Afanasyev presented the paper "The Story of ChronoShare, or How NDN Brought Distributed Secure File Sharing Back" at IEEE MASS 2015 Workshop on Content Centric Networking.
2nd ACM ICN conference was held September 30 — Oct 2 in San Francisco. The NDN team presented 4 papers there.
April 2015: I attended INFOCOM 2015 in Hong Kong where so many people talked to me about their interest in pursuing NDN research! I participated in the Panel on "What Should the Future Internet be Centered: Information, Service, Mobility, or User?" and here is my presentation in answering that question.
October 2014: Our paper, "The Shape and Size of Threats: Defining a Networked System's Attack Surface", received NPSec 2014 Best Paper Award.
September 2014: The first NDN Community Meeting was held September 4-5, 2014 on UCLA campus.
SIGCOMM 2013 ICN Workshop was held in Hong Kong August 12, 2013. NDN team presented a paper "NLSR: Named-data Link State Routing Protocol" at ICN'13.
There was an NDN session on the second day of AsiaFI Summer School 2013, right before the ICN Workshop.
July 2013: After missing the last IETF (one of the few I missed over 27 years), I attended IETF87 in Berlin 7/28-8/2.
September 2012: A second Dagstuhl Seminar on "Information-centric networking" was held in early September. Compared to the first one at end of 2010, one can see clearly how much the area has moved forward.
September 2013: ICNP 2013 is coming soon, with a new theme on Information-Centric Networking.
January 2014: Busy hosting 3 NDN project meetings at UCLA! (on NDN routing, NDN forwarding daemon, and trust management).
May 2014: NSF announced the Future Internet Architecture - Next Phase (FAI-NP) awards.
Our paper VANET via Named Data Networking was presented at INFOCOM 2014 NOM workshop in April.
August 2013: NDN website got a new face! Check out our Year-2 progress report and other news there.
A second CCNx Community Meeting was hosted by INRIA the week after. A lot of progress since the first CCN community meeting a year ago!
August 2012: In the process of preparing a tutorial paper on NDN I collected a list of old papers, which may be interesting to people in networking area. People may also be interested in a set of design principles summarized in Professors Saltzer & Kaashoek's book on "Principles of Computer System Design".
August 2012: I attended US-China Workshop on Environmental Monitoring for Public Health and Disaster Recovery and gave a talk on "Networking Cyberphysical Systems via Named Data". Stay tuned to read the final workshop report here.
June 2012: If March was a busy month, then June has been twice as busy. I hit the ground running right after my last lecture of spring quarter. I attended the annual Hong Kong Research Grant Review Panel and was invited to half dozen universities and institutions around China to talk about NDN. More and more people become interested and excited about the named data networking direction!
March 2012: March was a busy month. As soon as winter quarter teaching ended, Jim, Van and myself attended AsiaFI NDN Hands-on Workshop held at Seoul National University March 19-21; I went to Paris for IETF83 afterwards; then three of us met again at INFOCOM NOMEN Workshop on March 30th.
February 2012: Recently I've been named the holder of Postel Chair in Computer Science.
August 2011: Zhenkai Zhu attended SIGCOMM and presented his work "ACT: Audio Conference Tool Over Named Data Networks" at SIGCOMM ICN Workshop.
May 2011: The NDN project held a retreat at PARC May 23-24; we also attended the NSF FIA program PI meeting May 25-26. Here is the NDN team's presentation at the PI meeting.
1/1/2011: Here is what I put out on 1/1/2010:
September 2010: One of our ongoing projects is to measure the prevalence and persistency of the usage of unallocated IP address blocks. This got me to reread 2 technical reports from 2003 that never got published, they still look rather relevant today:
August 2010: Our joint proposal with PARC and eight other universities, "Named Data Networking (NDN)" which is based on Van Jacobson's vision of CCN, has been funded under NSF's Future Internet Architectures (FIA) program (see NSF's press release).
April 2010: Our paper on "Investigating occurrence of duplicate updates in BGP announcements" received PAM 2010 Best Paper Award.
3/21/2010: Today is the first day at IETF77. Accidentally, or not accidentally, several people talked to me about how to secure today's global routing or DNS systems, given that not only solution developments take time but the adoption is also uncertain and slow. My answer: adding a monitoring system can be an effective and readily deployable first step towards securing your system. See our Cyclops global routing monitoring system, and SecSpider DNSSEC monitoring system.
The new decade seems to need a new acronym--the thing we used to call "cellphone" is no longer a phone; it has become a general-purpose computer and making calls is merely one of its many app's (e.g. look at your iPhone). At the same time a number of new types of hand-held "devices" (for lack of a better word) have shown up, e.g. Amazon's Kindle, iPod, or this forever coming Apple tablet.
Here is a suggestion for a new acronym for them all: HHDs, for Hand-Held Devices.
Here is that paper (and Michael deverses the major credit!):
September 2009: two of our recent papers may look interesting to people:
Supporting Mobility in the Global Internet
Lixia Zhang, Ryuji Wakikawa, Zhenkai Zhu
ACM MOBICOM MICNET Workshop, September 2009.
March 2009: IETF74 was held in San Francisco. Our project team gave a few talks at the Routing Research Group meeting:
Janurary 2009: I am teaching 2 courses during winter 2009, CS118 (Introduction to Networking) and CS217A (Internet Architecture & Protocols). This will keep me extremely busy for next 3 months.
October 2008: Several things to report this month.
August 2008: I happened to cross my very first published paper "Why TCP Timers Don't Work Well" (SIGCOMM 1986 Best Student Paper Award), and was a bit amazed by how well it reads 22 years later :-)
July 2008: My paper "A Retrospective View of NAT" will appear in IEEE Network Special Issue on Middleboxes, September 2008 (Time flies! 9 years have passed since I coined the word middlebox back in 1999).
June 2008: Summer internship seems the fashion this summer: Jonathan Park went to Intel Labs; Ricardo Oliveira went to Juniper; and Eric Osterweil went to PARC to work on a project led by Van Jacobson.
June 2008: Ricardo had a busy month, he attended SIGMETRICS 2008 to present our paper on "In Search of the elusive Ground Truth: The Internet's AS-level Connectivity Structure", as well as NANOG 43 and presented "Cyclops: An Internet AS-level Observatory"(slides)
June 2007: I missed NANOG-40, but 3 IRLers made it, each gave a talk: Mohit chaired the BGP Tools BoF and presented Link-Rank, Eric presented BGP-Origins, and Ricardo presented a lightning talk on Cyclops.
June 2007: BGP-Origins goes live and is eager for community participation and feedback.
March 2007: Recently there have been lots discussions on "separating locators from identifiers". However different communities using this phrase to mean different things. To clarify the terminology, I gave a short talk at recent HIP Research Group meeting (slides).
February 2007: The Internet routing scalability has been a focus of recent discussions in the IETF community (see mailing lists email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org). IAB held a workshop on Routing and Addressing in October 2006. Here is the latest draft of the workshop report.
January 2007: IAB held a workshop on "Unwanted Internet Traffic" during March 2006. Here is the rworkshop report. We welcome your comments!
March 2006: The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) celebrated its 20th Anniversary. As one of the 21 attendees for the first IETF meeting held in January 1986, I was interviewed by the IETF Journal.
Here is my interview.
