Traditional network architectures based on the Internet Protocol (IP) are now being questioned by the research community, since they are no longer positioned as the most suitable paradigm for supporting the increasing diversity of applications and uses of the Internet. A key issue in this subject is that, although the IP protocol has provided the basis for the rapid evolution of the Internet, its addressing scheme is not prepared to face the challenges posed by many foreseen applications. In light of this, different initiatives worldwide have started specific research programs to address these problems and work toward the "Future Internet". The TARIFA project represents one of these initiatives, and it is positioned as a clean slate alternative aimed at overcoming the critical issues in today's Internet. The novelty in TARIFA resides in the fact that any “commodity” in the network can be composed as a set of atomic services, which can be in turn assembled through a service-centric model for building a promising Internet architecture. In this paper, we focus on the space requirements and set the basis for a new addressing scheme suitable for service-centric network architectures such as the one proposed by TARIFA. The addressing scheme discussed in this paper is general in scope, and could be applied not only to architectures based on the composition of services but also to user and data-centric Internet architectures.
