Research Institution

In this proposal, we define our approach for researching methods that provide distributed lookup and distribution of files using a variety of existing peer-to-peer networks models. We will need to research and to define the metrics for measuring the relative effectiveness and reliability of the distributed system versus the client/server model. We also must address the issues of security, synchronization, and revocation of data and consider deployment within a DoD context. The conclusion of Phase I, is a presentation of our findings to the sponsor and a notational demonstration that shows some of the real-world deployment issues and solutions of the research.
