Since the dawn of BitTorrent technology, free-riding has always been a critical<br/>issue restricting the performance and availability of the BitTorrent network. To solve this problem, BitTorrent involves a tit-for-tat mechanism which does not function satisfactorily against free-riding. Private trackers implement credit systems to eliminate...

The amount of people using smartphones to access shared content has rapidly grown in the last couple of years. Popular services to share the media all rely on a client/server model, which have scalability issues and are prone to censorship. A decentralized approach would make censorship more difficult and growth more sustainable. Thus the main...

Many private BitTorrent communities employ Sharing Ratio Enforcement<br/>(SRE) schemes to incentivize users to contribute. It has been demonstrated<br/>that users in private communities are highly dedicated and that they seed much<br/>longer than users in communities where SRE is not employed. While most pre-<br/>vious studies focus on showing...

Online networks like email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, eBay, and BitTorrent-like Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems have become popular and powerful infrastructures for communication. They involve potentially large numbers of humans with their collective inputs and decisions, and they often rely on the cooperation and the contribution of their users...

As mobile Internet traffic continues to consistently gain on desktop traffic in terms of volume, a desire for a mobile version of Tribler was expressed by the Client: Dr. Ir. Johan Pouwelse. This desire was formulated into a Bachelor project, which will be executed within a period of 11 weeks. The project is centered around answering the...

In P2P content distribution networks, incentive mechanisms are required for sustainable operation of the network. In general, there are two classes of incentive mechanisms, direct and indirect. In direct mechanisms, a content consumer compensates the work of a supplier by providing him some content in return. In indirect mechanisms, the work of...

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer computer network protocol for sharing content in an efficient and scalable way. Modeling and analysis of the popular private BitTorrent communities has become an active area of research. In these communities users are strongly incentivized to contribute their resources, i.e., to share their files. In BitTorrent...

It has gradually become clear that Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems should not be conceived in the manner of conventional computing systems. Consequently, over the years, ideas from social science in general and economics in particular have made their way to P2P systems to deal with the novel challenges that such systems throw up. In Chapter 2 of this...

On today's Internet, millions of people participate in peer-to-peer communities where they share content such as audio and video files. Contrary to websites such as Youtube, which rely on large and expensive computer servers to store and deliver all of their content, peer-to-peer communities rely on storage and delivery by the PCs of the users...

The World Wide Web is growing fast. Web content is growing as well. To cope with this trend, server infrastructures must be able to serve a huge amount of traffic. When this cannot happen, service denial is the consequence. Small content publishers are the most affected by this phenomenon. At the same time, BitTorrent is leading the file sharing...

BitTorrent has turned into the most popular P2P file sharing protocol and is used for various purposes such as Video on demand and Media Streaming. The fundamental problem with P2P networks in general is that quality of service highly depends on altruistic resource sharing by participating peers. Many peers freeride on the good intentions of...

Peer-to-peer (P2P) technology allows us to create self-organising and scalable systems. The distributed nature of these systems requires a solution for finding interesting peers. In the context of P2P file sharing, finding peers who are downloading the same file is referred to as the swarm discovery problem. In BitTorrent, this problem is solved...

A well-known problem in peer-to-peer networks is free-riding, where users do not share resources in return for what they consume. Free-riders can be distinguished in two categories: diehard free-riders that are willing to subvert the network’s protocol in order to free-ride, and lazy free-riders that are reluctant to share but do follow the...

BitTorrent is a popular peer-to-peer file sharing protocol. From a user’s perspective, it is important that a BitTorrent client downloads the files as fast as possible. The socially enhanced BitTorrent client called Tribler – from the Delft University of Technology and the Vrije Universiteit – was presumed to be lacking in speed. This...
