Named Data Networking (NDN) has the potential to create a more secure future Internet. It is therefore crucial to investigate its vulnerabilities in order to make it safer against information leakage attacks. In NDN, malware inside an enterprise can encode condential information into Interest names and send it to the attacker. One of the countermeasures is to inspect a name in the Interest using a name lter and identify it as legitimate or anomalous. Although the name lter can dramatically decrease the information leakage throughput per Interest, it has a serious disadvantage: it does not consider a ow of Interests. This means that the malware can not only cause...
