0 to 10k in 20 Seconds: Bootstrapping Large-Scale DHT Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

A handful of proposals address the problem of bootstrapping a large DHT network from scratch, but they all forgo the standard DHT join protocols in favor of their own distributed algorithms that build routing tables directly. Motivating their algorithms, the proposals make a perfunctory claim that the standard join protocols are not designed to handle the huge number of concurrent join requests involved in such a bootstrapping scenario. Moreover, the proposals assume a pre-existing unstructured overlay as a starting point for their algorithms.
