An alternative to identifying content by its location is to identify content by its content itself. This is called content-addressing. The hash of some content is computed and used as an unique identifier for the content.

Authenticity of content is automatically ensured with content-addressing (when using a cryptographic hash) as the identifier of the content can be computed to check that the content matches the requested identifier.

The objectives of ERIS are:
Availability :: Content encoded with ERIS can be easily replicated and cached.
-Authenticity :: Authenticity of content can be verified efficiently.
+Integrity :: Integrity of content can be verified efficiently.
URN reference :: ERIS encoded content can be referrenced with a single URN.
Storage efficiency :: ERIS can be used to encode small content (< 1 kibibyte) as well as large content (> many gibibyte) with reasonable storage overhead.
Simplicity :: The encoding should be as simple as possible in order to allow correct implementation on various platforms and in various languages.
