Abstract

One embodiment provides a system that facilitates distributed consensus in a content centric network. During operation, the system generates, by a coordinator for a plurality of nodes, a first interest that indicates a request to approve a proposed value for a variable. In response to receiving a positive acknowledgment of the first interest from a majority of the nodes, the coordinator generates a second interest that indicates a request to accept the proposed value. A name for the first interest and a name for the second interest include an identifier of the variable and a round number. A payload of the first interest and a payload of the second interest include the proposed value. In response to receiving a positive acknowledgement of the second interest from the majority of the nodes, the system generates a notification indicating that an agreed-upon value for the variable is the proposed value.
