Analyzing the Dual-Path Peer-to-Peer Anonymous Approach
Dual-Path is an anonymous peer-to-peer approach which provides requester anonymity. This approach provides anonymity between a requester and a provider in peer-to-peer networks with trusted servers called supper node so the provider will not be able to identify the requester and no other peers can identify the two communicating parties with certainty. Dual-Path establishes two paths for transmitting data. These paths called Request path and Response path. The first one is used for requesting data and the second one is used for sending the requested data to the requester. As Dual-Path approach is similar to Crowds approach, this paper compares reliability and performance of Dual-Path and Crowds.
