    determining whether the packet belongs to a pre-existing communication session;

    determining whether state information associated with the communication session is available at the intermediary network device;

    in response to the communication packet belonging to a pre-existing communication session and the session state information being unavailable, constructing an interest requesting the session state information, wherein the interest comprises a hierarchically structured variable-length name;
