Hybrid Information-Centric Networking (hICN) is a network architecture that makes use of IPv6 or IPv4 to realize location-independent communications.
It is largely inspired by the pioneer work of Van Jacobson on Content-Centric Networking, that was a clean-slate architecture whereas hICN is based on the Internet protocol and easy to deploy in today networks and applications. hICN brings many-to-many communications, multi-homing, multi-path, multi-source, group communications to the Internet protocol without replicated unicast.
The project implements novel transport protocols, with a socket API, for real-time and capacity seeking applications. A scalable stack is available based on VPP and a client stack is provided to support any mobile and desktop operating system.
To get started with hICN check out the Blog post.
The Developer Wiki is at hICN Wiki.
The hiCN User Docs are here – hICN Docs.
GoVPP is a Golang toolset for VPP management. It consists of a set of Golang packages that provide the API for VPP management based on the Go bindings generated from the VPP binary APIs. It can be used as the foundation for any VPP management/control plane written in Go.
Apart from the packages providing the API and tools allowing to write VPP management applications in Go from scratch, the project also aims to provide a cloud-native VPP management agent that can be used in VPP-based container infrastructure.
To get started with GoVPP check out the Introduction Slides.
The GoVPP Docs are on the GitHub wiki – GoVPP Docs.

The FD.io software is being continuosly be tested with the tools and framework provided by the CSIT project (Continuous System Integration and Testing).
The project description can be found here CSIT Project.
Reports are published on a release basis at CSIT Report.
Data on FD.io trending performance is found at CSIT Trending.
FD.io Complete System Integration Testing (CSIT) is software written for fully automated FD.io VPP code testing, functionality, performance, regression and new functions.
The CSIT Trending Report is a report that shows the FD.io performance over time. This report insures that over time FD.io will not have perfomance regressions.
