Information-centric networking (ICN) enables communication in isolated islands, where fixed infrastructure is not available, but also supports seamless communication if the infrastructure is up and running again. In disaster scenarios, when a fixed infrastructure is broken, content discovery algorit hms are required to learn what content is locally available. For example, if preferred content is not available, users may also be satisfied with second best options. In this paper, we describe a new content discovery algorithm and compare it to existing Depth-first and Breadth-first traversal algorithms. Evaluations in mobile scenarios with up to 100 nodes show that it results in better performance, i.e., faster discovery time and smaller traffic overhead, than existing algorithms.
