CCN-Java Opensource Kit EmulatoR (CCN-Joker)

CCN-Joker is a new fully customizable and open source emulation platform for Content Centric Networking. It allows the emulation of the basic aspects of a CCN, such as the handling of Interest and Data packets, as well as cache sizing and replacement policies. The CCN-Joker rationale entails an application-level overlay that can be applied to both emulation-based analyses and real experiments. It is composed by several modules interacting with the data structures which a CCN node is commonly made of. Thanks to its modular structures, it could be easily upgraded in the future to support further CCN properties and enhancements.
