Chimera and Tapestry
In today's chaotic network, data and services are mobile and replicated widely for availability, durability, and locality. Components within this infrastructure interact in rich and complex ways, greatly stressing traditional approaches to name service and routing. We advocate the use of structured peer-to-peer overlays as a routing infrastructure that improves routing resilience to loss and attacks. Two of our protocols, Chimera and Tapestry, provide decentralized location-independent routing of messages to named keys. The Chimera and Tapestry projects are being developed at the CURRENT Lab for secure and reliable networking under the supervision of Prof. Ben Zhao.
