What is it and what is it intended for?
Information-centric networking is an emerging alternative to host-centric networking designed for large-scale content distribution and stricter privacy requirements. This research focused on protecting the network from attacks targeting the content delivery protocols while assuming genuine content can constantly be retrieved from trustworthy nodes.
Why is it important?
In our work, we provided the security assurance methodology for information-centric networks supporting continuous security verification of non-functional properties. We improve trustworthiness and transparency by proposing two certification processes balancing the impact on the network and the system performance. It can be adapted for various applications, from Service Level Agreements to misbehaviour and attack monitoring.
