Content internetworking (also referred to as content distribution internetworking, or CDI) is the technology for interconnecting content networks. The CDI model allows for interconnecting various Content Networks. The internetworking task requires request routing and content distribution protocols. This document investigates the security risks and threats associated with the content internetworking. Proposed remedies are viewed not as design recommendations but more as illustrations of the nature of threats.
