ICN is a new communication paradigm to increase the efficiency of content delivery and also the content availability. In this new concept, the network infrastructure actively contributes to content caching and distribution. This book presents the basic concepts of ICNs, describes the main architecture proposals for these networks, and discusses the main challenges for its development. The challenges include naming, routing, and caching on the network-core elements and also several aspects of content security, users' privacy, and practical issues to implement ICNs.
