Techniques are described herein that provide a forwarding strategy applicable to Information Centric Networking (ICN) networks and hybrid ICN (hICN) networks. In such networks, Interest requests are likely to be hair-pinned back to a Forwarder that is serving a dynamic cache system. When the dynamic cache system has no representation of the named data object, the Forwarder must recycle the Interest request back into the network. However, the Forwarding logic must avoid hair-pinning the Interest back to the same unpopulated cache.
