This article introduces a self-organizing model which builds the topology of a DHT mapping system for ICN. Due to its self-organizing operation and low average degree of maintenance, the management overhead of the system is reduced dramatically, which yields inherent scalability. The proposed model can improve latency by around 10% compared to an existing approach which has a near optimal average distance when the number of nodes and degree are given. In particular, its operation is simple which eases maintenance concerns. Moreover, we analyze the model theoretically to provide a deeper understanding of the proposal.
