Description

Currently, the autoconfig stages include:

  1. discovery of hub within Ethernet or IP multicast domains
  2. discovery using DNS with domain suffixes obtained from DHCP
  3. discovery using pre-configured security credentials

The first stage needs to get extended to include mDNS / DNS-SD queries to discover locally available hub. Anecdotally, mDNS queries have higher chance to work than other protocols, even though they utilize the same IP multicast. This is a result of optimizations some hardware vendors did to allow mDNS to work while limiting multicast capabilities.

Will autoconfig use NDN Interest/Data over mDNS, or will it use non-NDN packets?

Alex reveals at 20160526 call that a UCLA student is designing an alternate to this approach.
