Design Choices in P2P Infrastructure

Time 10/04/01 04:05PM-04:30PM

Session Abstract

The P2P world is filled with a variety of systems; even P2P systems with similar goals take quite different approaches. If you want to design a new P2P system or understand how an existing one works, it is helpful to understand the different design choices that are available. This talk will examine several technical problems in P2P infrastrucutre -- the parts that are likely to be found in almost all P2P systems -- including naming, routing, messaging, and lookup and the tradeoffs that are involved. In addition, I will present a few unsolved problems that could lead to interesting research.
