Due to the increasingly diverse environment expected for users and the proliferation of mobile and wireless terminals in the future Internet, special attention should be paid to person-to-person communications and multi-device support in future naming schemes' design. In this paper, we present a new naming proposal that we call Service-Aware Naming Architecture (SANA). Our solution is built around three key points. First, we challenge the traditional Identifier/Locator split paradigm by getting rid of terminals' identifiers and promoting users and services identification. Second, we provide a transparent multi-device support to the network. And finally, we make user's session switching between different terminals agnostic to applications and networks.
