Information-Centric Networking (ICN) is a novel paradigm where
network communications are accomplished by requesting named content
instead of sending packets to destination addresses. Named Data
Networking (NDN) and Content-Centric Networking (CCNx) are two
prominent ICN architectures. This document provides an overview of
the terminology and definitions that have been used in describing
concepts in these two implementations of ICN. While there are other
ICN architectures, they are not part of the NDN and CCNx concepts and
as such are out of scope for this document. This document is a
product of the Information-Centric Networking Research Group (ICNRG).
