Write 5 pages thesis on the topic a scalable peer-to-peer lookup protocol for internet application. The CAN model has its advantages such as its scalability, fault-tolerant and it completely self-organizes itself. Other variables such as its scalability, robustness and low-latency properties are better demonstrated through simulation.
Domain Name System: stores key-value pairs of the domain name or IP address. When compared to CAN, CAN is more general than the DNS and again CAN resolves name resolution is independent thus the two systems’ designs are different.
Publius is a Web publishing system that is highly resistant to censorship while it provides anonymous publishing. CAN design can be implemented in the Publius design so enable it to access a large number of servers.
Its main goal is to perform routing, data storage, data sharing, group communication and naming on larger networks and that is where its strength lies. When its presented with a message and a key, a Pastry node routes the message to the node with the specified nodeId.
Peer-to-peer Internet applications have been popularized through ﬁle sharing applications like Napster, Gnutella, and Freenet. Thus peer-to-peer systems have revolutionized and implemented technical aspects such as decentralized control, self- organization, adaptation, and scalability. Peer-to-peer applications are thus distributed systems where the nodes have identical capabilities and all communication between the nodes is symmetric.
File sharing facilities In use include Gnutella and Freenet. The Napster is a music exchange service that uses the peer-to-peer systems but in essence, it’s is not a fully peer to peer facility as it uses a centralized database. Sharing of data ﬁles on these systems is quite reliable. In Gnutella, using broadcast messages on a broadcast protocol limits the system’s scalability.
