Contents oriented networking (CON) is an emerging concept, in which a new networking paradigm based on contents name instead of host address is introduced. For gradual deployment towards CON from legacy Internet, an interworking architecture between CON and Internet is indispensible. In this paper, we introduce the proxy name server (PNS) that performs contents name from/to host address translation for interworking. We first present the PNS structure and detailed interworking operations. Also, further considerations for building better interworking architecture are discussed.
