In-network computing indicates the convergence of computing and network, which can be further considered as computing-based networking and network-enabled computing, from which comes the edge in-network computing paradigm. In this newly proposed paradigm, the computing, caching, and communication resources are deployed on in-transit edge nodes, such as routers or switches; hence, services are provided with less delay and energy consumption by the deep aggregation of edge-side resources. However, open challenges still exist in dealing with heterogeneous resource sharing, scheduling, and ensuring credibility of service processing. Given this background, this article aims to address the edge-si..
