On the Topologies Formed by Selfish Peers



Many P2P systems are only proven efficient for static environments. However, in practice, P2P systems are often very dynamic in the sense that peers can join and leave a system at any time and concurrently. In the first part of my talk, I will present a DHT we have developed recently in our group which maintains desirable properties under worst-case churn. In the second part of my talk, we will briefly look at another challenge of prime importance in P2P computing, namely selfishness. Concretely, some results are presented concerning the impact of selfish behavior on the performance of P2P topologies.
