Least fresh first cache replacement policy for NDN-based IoT networks

Abstract : In-network caching in Named Data Networking (NDN) based Internet of Things (IoT) plays a central role for efficient data dissemination. Data cached throughout the network may quickly become obsolete as they are transient and frequently updated by their producers. As such, NDN-based IoT networks impose stringent requirement in terms of data freshness. While various cache replacement policies were proposed, none has considered the cache freshness requirement. In this paper, we introduce a novel cache replacement policy called Least Fresh First (LFF) integrating the cache freshness requirement. LFF evicts invalid cached contents based on time series forecasting of sensors future events. Extensive simulations are performed to evaluate the performance of LFF and to compare it to the different well-known cache replacement policies in ICN-based IoT networks. The obtained results show that LFF significantly improves data freshness compared to other policies, while enhancing the server hit reduction ratio, the hop reduction ratio and the response latency.
