Applications in the Internet of Things (IoT) face a number of unique challenges due to the constrained nature of the hardware. One of these challenges is that available memory is often extremely limited. This work aims to develop approaches that can ensure reliable and efficient data delivery while taking these limits into consideration. On the one hand, data filtering methods are discussed that can reduce the memory requirements of distributed IoT applications; on the other hand, the work explores open research questions in the developing field of Information-Centric Networking (ICN) related to caching and how it can be realised in a constrained-memory setting. Special focus is placed on optimising cache placement and providing application-driven data freshness controls in information-centric IoT.
