Executive Summary

Mobile peer-to-peer systems have recently got in the limelight of the research community that is striving to build efficient and effective mobile content addressable networks. Along this line of research, the authors propose a new Peer-To-Peer (P2P) file sharing protocol suited to Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANET). The main ingredients of the protocol are network coding and mobility assisted data propagation, i.e., single-hop communication. They argue that network coding in combination with single-hop communication allows P2P file sharing systems in MANET to operate in a more efficient manner and helps the systems to deal with typical MANET issues such as dynamic topology and intermittent connectivity as well as various other issues that have been disregarded in previous MANET P2P researches such as addressing, node/user density, non-cooperativeness, and unreliable channel.
