One embodiment provides a system that facilitates efficient and secure flow control based on a fragmentation protocol. During operation, the system receives, by an intermediate node, a first fragment which is a fragment of a content object that is fragmented into a plurality of fragments, wherein the plurality of fragments includes at least one named fragment, which indicates a name associated with the content object, the name being a hierarchically structured variable-length identifier that comprises contiguous name components ordered from a most general level to a most specific level. The intermediate node detects a congestion, and sets an indicator for congestion notification in the received fragment. The intermediate node forwards the received fragment, and drops a second fragment received after the forwarded fragment.
