windows default iconBitThief Publisher's description

An ongoing research project of the Distributed Computing Group at ETH Zurich

BitThief is an ongoing research project of the Distributed Computing Group at ETH Zurich. In this project we study selfish behavior in distributed systems, and in particular in peer-to-peer filesharing systems. The lack of incentives to contribute resources potentially results in a total Collapse of a peer-to-peer system, implying that it is essential for a completely decentralized system to incorporate protocols that ensure a fair sharing of resources.
