One embodiment provides a system that facilitates a secure encryption proxy in a content centric network. During operation, the system receives, by an intermediate router from a content-consuming computing device, a first interest that includes a first name, signaling information encrypted based on a signaling key, and an inner interest encrypted based on an encryption key. The inner interest includes a name for a manifest that represents a collection of data. The intermediate router does not possess the encryption key. The system generates one or more interests for the data represented by the manifest. The system transmits to the content-consuming computing device a content object received in response to a generated interest, wherein the intermediate router transmits the responsive content object without receiving a corresponding interest from the content-consuming computing device, thereby facilitating reduced network between the content-consuming computing device and the intermediate router.
