  1. 1. Architectures for application transparent proxies : A study of network enhancing software

    Author : Björn Knutsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Communication; Proxies; Internet; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Computer Systems; Datorteknik;

    Abstract : Proxies, software deployed inside the network, play a fundamental role in the Internet by providing enhanced functionality to the network. Deployment of proxies is a flexible way of extending the Internet architecture with new services and to cope with problems that were not foreseen at the time the original Internet protocols were defined.

  4. 4. Distributed Peer Discovery in Large-Scale P2P Streaming Systems : Addressing Practical Problems of P2P Deployments on the Open Internet

    Author : Raul Jimenez; Seif Haridi; Björn Knutsson; Arnaud Legout; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Peer-to-peer (P2P) techniques allow users with limited resources to distribute content to a potentially large audience by turning passive clients into peers. Peers can self-organize to distribute content to each other, increasing the scalability of the system and decreasing the publisher’s costs, compared to a publisher distributing the data himself using a content delivery network (CDN) or his own servers.
