The current Internet architecture reveals its chronic limitations against the new paradigms of networking. The advancement of technology has changed the network use from communication to content distribution. Unfortunately, the IP-based network architecture is inadequate to support such a trend because it has been developed from a traditional communication model like one-to-one phone call in which users should know where the others are. In order to solve this problem, current innovative researches propose a way to place content itself on the center of communication, i.e., Information Centric Networking (ICN) or Content Centric Networking (CCN) , so that all the entities on the network can communicate with each other using content name, regardless the location of the content. As a result of these efforts, NDN  was proposed as an instance of ICN, and has been actively researched. Additionally, Wang et al.  and Hoque et al.  suggested OSPFN and NLSR, respectively, as for intra-domain routing protocols in order to support this new generation of networking, but to the best of our knowledge, no inter-domain routing protocol has been proposed yet. In this thesis, we develop an inter-domain routing protocol for ICN, called SIDR, Scalable Inter-Domain Routing protocol, which can support the scalability using domain names of networks. Since our protocol is established based on BGP, it follows the message formats and attributes of the protocol. In addition, it also consists of E-SIDR and I-SIDR, in which E-SIDR distributes the reachability information between ASes, while I-SIDR announces the information inside an AS. However, the security features of ICN enable SIDR to be secure as S-BGP with simpler mechanisms. Additionally, I-SIDR is not suffering from complex routing techniques, such as route reflection or BGP confederation, because of the loop prevention property of the new networking architecture. As a result of our simulation, E-SIDR works exactly the same as EBGP during announcements and withdrawals. And also, I-SIDR shows competitive performances compared to IBGP. Even though I-SIDR generates the same or more number of messages, it stabilizes networks within a short space of time as IBGP. Throughout this paper, we will show that how our protocol can support the scalability and how it uses the desirable features of the new network model.
