PyCNL: An NDN Common Name Library for Python

The Common Name Library (CNL) is a proposed API for NDN applications. Built on top of the lower-level Interest/Data exchange primitives of the Common Client Libraries, the CNL maintains an abstraction of the application's namespace. The application can attach specialized handlers to nodes of the namespace, for example to treat part of the name tree as segmented content, or to do data encryption/decryption. The CNL can also alert the application when new names are added to the namespace or when content is attached to a namespace node, whether by receiving a Data packet from the network, retrieving from a repo, or assembling the result of segmented content.
