Currently, Mini-NDN creates the NFD socket file of each node in the node's home folder and modifies nfd.conf and client.conf to point to this socket file.

This task should look into using the per-host private directories feature from Mininet to mount the created socket file to /var/run so that the configuration files do not have to be modified.

  • Priority changed from Normal to High

Priority marked as high because Mini-NDN uses sudo to run and it would be better if we can limit the powers of sudo to private directories.
