A Scalable Interest-Oriented Peer-to-Peer Pub/Sub Network
There has been a big challenge in structured peer-to-peer overlay network research area. Generally, a structured overlay network involves nodes evenly or based on their resource availabilities, and gathers nodes' resources to achieve some bigger tasks. The challenge here is to gather resources based on nodes' interests, and only interested nodes are involved in a certain task. Toward this challenge, the authors propose a new scheme to a peer-to-peer publish/subscribe network. Publish/subscribe represents a new paradigm for distributed content delivery. It provides an alternative to address-based communication due to its ability to decouple communication between the source and the destination.
