As computer and internet usage grows from one day to another and there is the need for information and obtaining it as quickly as possible, the biggest issue is finding a specific resource efficiently. This paper presents the current status of P2P architectures, presenting their search mechanisms, and provides a simple, accurate protocol for better implementing search in P2P networks, showing that this operations' complexity can be reduced in matter of speed and use of resources. In the first section, the authors will present classic P2P architecture. Section 2 describes Chord protocol and the last section will show a new protocol that can be used in P2P networks.
