A replica service of a Content Centric Network can host content published by various publishers, without having to explicitly advertise a name prefix associated with these various publishers. Consumers across CCN can generate an Interest that includes a location-independent name associated with a replica service that hosts content for a given publisher, and includes a hash of the desired Content Object. CCN nodes can forward the Interest to the corresponding replica service based on the Interest's name, and the replica service can return a nameless Content Object whose hash matches the Interest's hash value. It may be possible for nameless Content Objects from various publishers to have matching hash values from time to time. CCN nodes can reduce collisions of nameless Content Objects by using a Publisher ID specified in an Interest to find a matching Content Object that was published by a desired publisher.
