Context-centric applications and services are premised on the ability to readily respond to changes in context. Centralized approaches to enabling this are undermined by their dependencies on DNS naming services while decentralized approaches using DHT variants have been centred on the provisioning of the underlying context information, creating information-centric rather than context-centric solutions. A dynamic Internet of Things mandates a new paradigm; approaches storing, discovering and associating context entities relevant to their context state. In this paper, we explore such a paradigm, and with the implementation of a prototype, show the advantages of moving towards the notion of context-state centricity on the Internet of Things.
