Mini-NDN version 0.1.0 (initial release)

Release date: July 15, 2015

Mini-NDN is a lightweight networking emulation tool that enables testing, experimentation, and research on the NDN platform. Based on Mininet, Mini-NDN uses the NDN libraries, NFD, NLSR, and tools released by the NDN project to emulate an NDN network on a single system.

Included features:

  • Run a complete NDN network on a single system

  • Automatic configuration of NLSR to provide a routable NDN network

  • Supports user created NDN applications

  • Create a topology using the included Mini-NDN Edit GUI application

  • Allows individual configuration of NFD and NLSR parameters for each node

  • Provides an experiment management framework for easy creation of custom networking experiments

  • Uses a simple topology file format to define hosts, links, and configuration values

  • Configure network link parameters including bandwidth, delay, and loss rate

  • Includes a pre-configured topology file to replicate the NDN testbed
