One embodiment of the present invention provides a system for updating link-status information associated with a prefix in an information-centric network (ICN). During operation, a first node in the ICN receives a link-state advertisement (LSA) message from a neighbor node with the LSA message specifying a prefix and an anchor node advertising the specified prefix. The system determines, based on topology information stored on the first node, whether a shortest-path condition is met, and forwards the received LSA message to other neighbors of the first node in response to the shortest-path condition being met.
