         Information-centric Networking: Evaluation Methodology
               draft-irtf-icnrg-evaluation-methodology-03

Abstract

   This document surveys the evaluation tools currently available to
   researchers in the information-centric networking (ICN) area and
   provides suggestions regarding methodology and metrics.  Further,
   this document sheds some light on the impact of ICN on network
   security.

1.  Introduction

   Different information-centric networking (ICN) approaches are
   evaluated in the peer-reviewed literature using a mixture of
   theoretical analysis, simulation and emulation techniques, and
   empirical (testbed) measurements.  The specific methodology employed
   may depend on the experimentation goal, e.g., whether one wants to
   evaluate scalability, quantify resource utilization, or analyze
