Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks attract attentions worldwide with their great success in file sharing networks (e.g., Napster, Gnutella, BitTorrent, and Kazaa). In the last decade, numerous studies have been devoted to the problem of resource discovery in P2P networks. Recent research on structured and unstructured P2P systems provides a series of useful solutions to improve the scalability and performance of service discovery in large-scale service-based systems. In this chapter, the authors systematically review recent research studies on P2P search techniques and explore the potential roles and influence of P2P networking in dependable service-based military systems.
