In this talk I’ll discuss the fundamentals of peer-to-peer networks and explain various interesting overlay networks. I’ll also cover issues of security and anonymity, and how they relate to the reliability and efficiency of the network. Finally, I’ll give examples of peer-to-peer networking in practice, as a mechanism for social networking, file sharing, multi-player gaming, web search and even the basis of a decentralized economy.
