PROJECT TITLE :
Attribute-based Access Control for ICN Naming Scheme - 2018
Info Centric Networking (ICN) is a new network design that aims to overcome the weakness of existing IPbased networking design. Instead of building a association between the communicating hosts, ICN focuses on the content, i.e., data, transmitted in network. Content copies in ICN will be cached at different locations. The content is out of its owner's control once it is printed. Thus, imposing access control policies on distributed content copies is crucial in ICN. Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE) could be a feasible approach to enforce such management mechanisms during this surroundings. However, applying ABE in ICN faces two challenges: from management perspective, it's difficult to manage attributes in distributed manners; from privacy protection perspective, not like in ancient networks, the enforced content access policies are public to all the ICN users. Thus, it's desirable that unauthorized content viewers aren't ready to retrieve the access policy. To this end, a privacy-preserving access management scheme for ICN and its corresponding attribute management answer are presented during this Project. The proposed approach is compatible with existing flat name based ICN architectures.
