Peer-To-Peer Storage: Security and Protocols (Computer Science, Technology and Applications)

Buy
Peer-to-peer (P2P) has proven as a most successful way to produce large scale, reliable, and cost-effective applications, as illustrated for file sharing or VoIP. P2P storage is an emerging field of application which allows peers to collectively leverage their resources towards ensuring the reliability and availability of user data. Providing assurances in both domains requires not only ensuring the confidentiality and privacy of the data storage process, but also thwarting peer misbehavior through the introduction of proper security and cooperation enforcement mechanisms. Misbehavior may consist in data destruction or corruption by malicious or free-riding peers. Additionally, a new form of man-in-the-middle attack may make it possible for a malicious peer to pretend to be storing data without using any local disk space. New forms of collusion also may occur whereby replica holders would collude to store a single replica of some data, thereby defeating the requirement of data redundancy. Finally, Sybil attackers may create a large number of identities and use them to gain a disproportionate personal advantage.The continuous observation of peer behavior and monitoring of the storage process is an important requirement to secure a storage system. Observing peer misbehavior requires appropriate primitives like proofs of data possession, a form of proof of knowledge whereby the holder interactively tries to convince the verifier that it possesses the very data without actually retrieving them or copying them at verifier’s memory. We present a survey of such techniques and discuss their suitability for assessing remote data storage.

Arts, Sciences, and Economics: A Historical Safari
Arts, Sciences, and Economics: A Historical Safari

This book deals with the economic aspects of changing attitudes in arts and sciences. The effects of the public good character of culture, along with the very long production period and lifetime for its products, are emphasized, since both contribute to the failure of normal market solutions. Embodiment of ideas and the consequences of modern...

Minimum Reinforcement in Concrete Members (European Structural Integrity Society)
Minimum Reinforcement in Concrete Members (European Structural Integrity Society)
Hardbound. The ESIS-Technical Committee 9 on Concrete was established in 1990 and has met seven times. A proposal was put to European and extra-European laboratories entitled "Scale effects and transitional failure phenomena of reinforced concrete beams in flexure" which lead to several positive responses.

Dojo: The Definitive Guide
Of all the Ajax-specific frameworks that have popped up in recent years, one clearly stands out as the industrial strength solution. Dojo is not just another JavaScript toolkit -- it's the JavaScript toolkit -- and Dojo: The Definitive Guide demonstrates how to tame Dojo's extensive library of utilities so that you can build rich and responsive web...
3D Imaging in Medicine: Algorithms, Systems, Applications (Nato ASI Subseries F:)
3D Imaging in Medicine: Algorithms, Systems, Applications (Nato ASI Subseries F:)
The visualization of human anatomy for diagnostic, therapeutic, and educational pur­ poses has long been a challenge for scientists and artists. In vivo medical imaging could not be introduced until the discovery of X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad ROntgen in 1895. With the early medical imaging techniques which are still in use today, the...
