       Contrace: Traceroute Facility for Content-Centric Network
                     draft-asaeda-icnrg-contrace-01

Abstract

   This document describes the traceroute facility for Content-Centric
   Network (CCN), named "Contrace".  Contrace investigates: 1) the
   forwarding path information per name prefix, device name, and
   function/application, 2) the Round-Trip Time (RTT) between content
   forwarder and consumer, and 3) the states of in-network cache per
   name prefix.
