Abstract

This chapter investigates the current landscape of peer-to-peer (P2P) storage and discovery systems. A classification of existing P2P discovery systems, outlining the advantages and disadvantages of each category, and surveying existing systems in each class, is presented. The design, operation and applications of Squid, a P2P information discovery system that supports flexible queries with search guarantees, are described.
