Naming and Addressing Design (NAD)Workshop (draft)

draft charter statements:

In today's Internet architecture, IP addresses are carrying multiple roles. The protocols and applications above IP on end systems use IP addresses as identifiers to name endpoint, and IP addresses are also as locators that can be topologically aggregated and indicate to which networks the endpoints are attached, which function is known as addressing.
Overloading of the naming and addressing functions of IP addresses bring many problems in mobility, security and routing scalability in today's and future Internet. Taking IP addresses as the static and unique name will break the topological aggregation of IP addresses space when end systems switch up-stream providers. However, dynamic renumbering end systems with proper IP addresses on providers changes will intermit the transport sessions above IP. In addition, IP addresses cannot satisfy the requirements of security as the identifiers of end systems. The overloading of the naming and addressing has been realized. And many efforts that decouple the naming and addressing functions of IP addresses have been developed. Some solutions such as HIP, IPNL, using domain name, etc., were proposed to address these issues. However, the existing efforts have little impact on practice. There still be unclear in some concepts and term definitions, problem spaces.
The goal of this workshop on naming and addressing in future Internet is to bring together researchers and engineers to discuss and specify the problem statements, define the concepts regarding naming and addressing issues in the existing and future Internet architecture, to examine research directions, problems and identify practical steps to address the architectural issues.

draft program (including proposed presentations)
possible workshop topics:

1. motivations and benefits of ID/Locator separation
2. problems space, requirements and goals of ID/Locator separation
3. what's problems in identifiers, locator, mapping between them? What need to identify and how to design identifiers?
4. practical problems? (costs/benefits/performance/infrastructure implications)
5. practical experiences of research, engineering development and deployment


Day 1
Morning

Session 1: problems statements and requirements
1) Background and related research (by DY Kim)
2) The requirements of mobility: how many IDs we need (host id, session id, content id,etc) (by R. Wakikawa)
3) The problems of current Internet Architecture (by Lixia Zhang)
4) Panel/discussion: requirements

Session 2: design goals
1)Identifiers definition and the approach to design a good ID
2)A summary of IRTF,European, etc. efforts on related topics.
3)Identifier and trust/security
4)Panel/discussion: definition of new ID (properties)
