Because of the mostly needless information about the resource providers, service-oriented resource acquisition is becoming a research hotspot of network service technology. However, it is very difficult for today's internet evolved from its original design to realize this mission. (1) The users must know which host should be connected. Actually, that is precisely what the user doesn't care about. (2) The ongoing streaming cannot be automatically transferred to another server that can provide the same service. (3) Traditional network architecture is lack of the uniform description to a variety of resource and services. Meanwhile, there are still some serious problems such as security, scalability, mobility. Therefore, some novel network and service architectures are proposed, one representative of which is the identifier and mapping network architecture. Based on the identifier and mapping network architecture, this paper proposes a Service-Oriented Resource/service Acquisition (SORA) scheme, which gives a clean-state redesign of Internet resource/service acquisition. The analysis and evaluation show that the scheme has good security and scalability, besides the basic capability to support service-oriented resource/service acquisition.
