Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks enable users to directly share digital content (such as audio, video, and text files) as well as real-time data (such as telephony traffic) with other users without depending on a central server. Although originally popularized by unlicensed online music services such as Napster, P2P networking has recently emerged as a viable multimillion dollar business model for the distribution of academic and clinical information, telecommunications, and social networking. Written at an accessible level for any reader familiar with fundamental Internet protocols, Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications explains the conceptual operations and architecture underlying basic P2P systems using well-known commercial systems as models. The book also delineates the latest research directions, thereby providing not only a sophisticated understanding of current systems, but also the means to improve upon these systems with innovations that will better performance, security, and flexibility. Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications is thus both a valuable starting point and an important reference to those practioners employed by any of the 200 companies with approximately $400 million invested in this new and lucrative technology.

  • Uses well-known commercial P2P systems as models, thus demonstrating real-world applicability.

  • Discusses how current research trends in wireless networking, high-def content, DRM, etc. will intersect with P2P, allowing readers to account for future developments in their designs.

  • Provides online access to the Overlay Weaver P2P emulator, an open-source tool that supports a number of peer-to-peer applications with which readers can practice.



- 使用知名商業P2P系統作為模型,從而展示了現實世界的應用性。
- 討論了當前無線網絡、高清內容、DRM等研究趨勢如何與P2P相交,使讀者能夠在設計中考慮未來的發展。
- 提供了Overlay Weaver P2P仿真器的在線訪問,這是一個開源工具,支持多種點對點應用程序,讀者可以通過該工具進行實踐。
