The authors present the design and evaluation of a secure peer-to-peer HTTP middleware framework that enables a multitude of web applications without relying on service providers. The framework is designed to be deployed in existing network environments, allowing ordinary users to create private services without investing in network infrastructure. Compared to previous work, scalability, NAT/firewall traversal and peer mobility is achieved without the need for maintaining dedicated servers by utilizing new network protocols and re-using existing network resources.
