                 draft-jhong-icnrg-nrs-requirements-00.txt

Abstract

   This document discusses the motivation and requirements for Name
   Resolution Service (NRS) in ICN. The NRS in ICN is to translate
   object names into routing hints such as locators, where names are
   location-independent and locators are network addresses.
