NLSR: Named Data Link State Routing Protocol
NLSR is a routing protocol for Named Data Networking (NDN) that populates the Routing
Information Base (RIB) of an NDN router, such as NFD. NLSR continues to evolve alongside
the core NDN protocol.
The main design goal of NLSR is to provide a routing protocol to populate NDN’s FIB. NLSR
calculates the routing table using link-state or hyperbolic routing and produces multiple
faces for each reachable name prefix in a single authoritative domain. NLSR will continue
to evolve over time to include neighbor discovery and to become a full fledged
inter-domain routing protocol for NDN. The protocol design is presented in full detail in
the NLSR Paper.
NLSR was mainly developed by members of the NSF-sponsored NDN project team. See AUTHORS.md for details.
Bug reports and feedback are highly appreciated and can be made through the NLSR Redmine.
