The World Wide Web in the Face of Future Internet Architectures
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
The World Wide Web (WWW) has arguably been the most popular application of the Internet for years. Over a period of time, it has developed over the principles of host-centric IP internet. However, the limitations of today's host-centric IP internet have motivated many future internet architectures that are centered around alternate principals such as content and services. In this thesis, we study the WWW and propose features needed by such clean slate future internet architectures that can benefit the WWW.
