Open Peer-to-Peer Cycle Sharing Systems
|Date:||June 16, 2004|
|Committee:||Virginia Lo (Chair)|
The research of peer-to-peer cycle sharing systems is a new area of P2P networking research whose goal is to support the execution of user cycles. Moving from the traditional institution-based resource-sharing environment, P2P cycle sharing systems pose many new research questions since it is operated in an open, dynamic, untrusted and insecure environment.
Peer-to-peer cycle sharing systems lie in the conjuncture of the fields of Peer-to-Peer networks, distributed computing and Grid computing. They use methods and principles from all of these fields. In this talk, I will first introduce the history of cycle sharing systems: from institution-based load sharing systems to Internet-scale peer-to-peer cycle sharing systems. Then I will discuss related research in the areas of overlay construction, resource discovery and reputation systems in P2P network and the convergence of Grid computing and P2P computing. Finally, I will conclude with my future research plans.
