Title: TRANSPORT SESSION STATE PROTOCOL
Abstract:
One embodiment provides a system that facilitates an efficient transport protocol. During operation, the system receives a first interest which indicates a query for optimal transport parameters, wherein a name for an interest is a hierarchically structured variable length identifier that includes contiguous name components ordered from a most general level to a most specific level, wherein the query is based on a name prefix that includes one or more contiguous name components. The system computes the optimal parameters based on historical information associated with the name prefix. The system transmits a first response which includes the computed optimal parameters to a requesting entity, thereby facilitating a transport protocol which increases network efficiency.
