Random Graphs for Peer-to-Peer Overlays
Modern peer-to-peer networks consist of several network layers and distributed algorithms providing features like indexing, resource balancing, entry protocols, security, anonymity, and cryptography. Since peer-to-peer networks are highly dynamic, a fundamental task in the design of these networks is to provide high connectivity. We propose a solution by distributed random link exchange algorithms such that the overlay network can be a connected random graph or use a random graph as backbone. Random graphs are expander graphs have logarithmic diameter, high node connectivity, excellent communication properties, and are expander graphs with high probability. In summary: they are an excellent choice to improve the stability and robustness of a dynamic network.
