Analysis and Design Peer-to-Peer Gnutella Network and Threat Solutions

Dejan Chandra Gope, Md Nasim Akhtar


Gnutella is a file sharing network that allows users to send and receive files over the Internet. The Gnutella network is a peer-to-peer (P2P) network, which allows users on different networks to share files. Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks have emerged over the past several years as new and effective ways for distributed resources to communicate and co-operate. Peer-to-peer computing is the sharing of computer resources and services by direct exchange between systems. These resources and services include the exchange of information, processing cycles, cache storage, and disk storage for files. P2P networking has the potential to greatly expand the usefulness of the network be it for sharing music and video, privately contracting for services or for coordinating the use of expensive scientific instruments and computers. Some of the networks, such as Napster and Gnutella are created in an ad hoc manner with little or no centralized control. Other P2P networks such as computational and data grids are being designed and implemented in a very structured manner. P2P networks are presenting new challenges to computer security and privacy in a number of ways. This project will explore Analysis and Design Peer-to-Peer Gnutella Network and Threat Solutions. Our primary focus will be analysis the Gnutella network, threat creation and solutions of threats.
