Forwarding strategy for using multiple interfaces in generic deployments
Deployers of NDN applications at the edge do not currently have a default or generic forwarding strategy to use that leverages multiple interfaces available on edge devices. Memphis has proposed SRTT forwarding might be used for this. An implementation is needed for testing in applications.

Our ASF strategy has been implemented in NFD and is part of the latest NFD release (0.5.0). Here's the related Redmine issue: https://redmine.named-data.net/issues/3566. I hope John will deploy the latest NFD soon on the testbed (or maybe he has deployed it). Since the ASF strategy (and any other NFD strategy) uses faces registered in the FIB as candidates for its probing/measurement, you will need to insert those interfaces into the FIB in some way. In routers, the population of the FIB is automatically done by the routing protocol (NLSR), but in end host you will probably need to do it in some other module (it's best to ask Junxiao/Alex what's the best way to do this).
