Peer-to-peer as an infrastructure service

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) communication has attracted significant interest from both academia 
and industry, and has become a successful communication paradigm for diverse Internet 
applications, including file sharing, live streaming, and video on demand. Today P2P applications 
account for over 70% of the Internet traffic, and the percentage is still growing. P2P has 
also been used to facilitate the development of such new generation of applications as social 
networking and cloud computing. Many of these systems use P2P as an underlying engine to 
boost their performance and to reduce the deployment costs. Examples include the Amazon 
EC2 cloud platform that opens a dedicated interface for BitTorrent, and LeafWeb P2P gaming 
platform that allows users to invite others from their Facebook profiles to play online games.

Yet there remain a number of challenges for P2P to be a fundamental infrastructure service
for pervasive Internet applications: It is necessary to deal with peer churns to provide stable 
and robust quality-of-service; the inventiveness of individual users and that of Internet Service 
Providers (ISPs) have to be carefully addressed for incorporating a P2P engine; and security 
issues have been brought to the front end as substantial P2P based attacks, viruses and botnets 
appear. These problems can be even more severe with the emerging new applications. 

The objective of this special issue is to summarize the recent research and development toward 
making P2P a better infrastructure service. The topics of interest for the special issue include, 
but are not limited to:

	P2P system modeling, simulation, and measurement
	P2P incentive mechanism
	Interaction between P2P and ISP
	Security Issues of P2P systems
	P2P with new generation of applications, e.g., social networking, cloud computing
