System And Method For Hash-based Forwarding Of Packets With Hierarchically Structured Variable-length Identifiers


One embodiment of the present invention provides a system for forwarding packets with hierarchically structured variable-length identifiers (HSVLIs). During operation, the system receiving a packet with an HSVLI. The packet includes a first value and a second value. The first value uniquely represents an interest corresponding to the HSVLI. The second value is derived based on at least a subset of the HSVLI components. The system then makes a forwarding decision for the packet based on the first hash value and second hash value.
