A Framework for the Design Configuration of Accountable Selfish-Resilient Peer-to-Peer Systems

Abstract : A challenge in designing a peer-to-peer (P2P) system is to ensure that the system is able to tolerate selfish nodes that strategically deviate from their specification whenever doing so is convenient. In this paper, we propose RACOON, a framework for the design of P2P systems that are resilient to selfish behaviours. While most existing solutions target specific systems or types of selfishness, RACOON proposes a generic and semi-automatic approach that achieves robust and reusable results. Also, RACOON supports the system designer in the performance-oriented tuning of the system, by proposing a novel approach that combines Game Theory and simulations. We illustrate the benefits of using RACOON by designing two P2P systems: a live streaming and an anonymous communication system. In simulations and a real deployment of the two applications on a testbed comprising 100 nodes, the systems designed using RACOON achieve both resilience to selfish nodes and high performance.
