CEDEO and Panasonic demonstrate ICN app at the GreenICN project review – Brussels 2014/05/14

CEDEO and Panasonic, partners of GreenICN, a EU-Japan project on the next generation “information centric” networking, have collaborated tin the development of end systems (peers) for GreenICN and demostrated their achievement at the first project review.

The demo is called “Managed advertising for real estate” (MARE). In MARE Toshiki, a real estate businessman, applies a windowing policy for his offers of vacation apartments. For two weeks his clients are pre-emptively offered available apartments but, after that, everybody, including non-clients, can access the apartments on offer. The MARE actors are:

  1. Nozomu, an apartment owner
  2. Toshiki, a real estate businessman
  3. Mary, Toshiki’s administrative assistant
  4. John and Keiko, Toshiki’s customers.

The GreenICN peer offers a number of features that map very well with Toshiki’s promotion strategy as shown by Figure 4 where the main steps of the walkthrough can be identified:

  1. Toshiki requests Segmenter Peer to prepare video (DASH segmentation, encryption, data identification) and store it to GreenICN
  2. Upon notification that Segmenter Peer has completed its job, Toshiki requests Licence Peer to create licences for his customers (currently John and Keiko)
  3. When Keiko requests to play the video, her Peer request Licence Peer to provide the means to decrypt the video
  4. Upon reception of decryption key Keiko can decrypt and see Toshiki’s video.

The demo is depicted in the figure below
