P2P protocol design and implementation
Distributed Hash Tables (DHTs) as P-Grid are the next generation Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems and mainly driven by research institutes. As researchers aim at open development, P-Grid was designed with a human-readable open XML communication protocol. Due to increased performance constraints this is not efficient enough anymore and a optional binary communication protocol is desired.
The project involves the design of a new binary communication protocol for P-Grid based on the current XML-based protocol. The protocol has then be implemented in the existing P-Grid application and evaluated on the large-scale test-bed PlanetLab.
