Content addressing and localization are the basic issues in design of content-aware networks (CAN). The paper summarizes assumptions for content-aware networks and presents content localization algorithm for PI-CAN, developed within FIE (Future Internet Engineering) project. The algorithm allows to find location of desired content in distributed content database in time O(1).
