The Scientific American features section (13/12/12) covers the PSIRP and PURSUIT research projects led by HIIT.
The new Information-Centric Network (ICN) designs propose to make the network more content aware and thus reduce operating costs, improve efficiency, and mitigate attacks against the networks.
- "The PSIRP projects laid the foundations for publish/subscribe style information-centric networking" says professor Sasu
Tarkoma, one of the original proposers of the PSIRP project.
- "The Scientific American article gives a very nice overview of the two well-known ICN proposals. The Content Centric
Networking (CCN) from PARC has become very popular in the research community".
