Pair-Wise Cryptographic Models for Secure Data Exchange in P2P Database Management Systems
A Peer-to-Peer Database Management System (P2PDBMS) is a collection of autonomous data sources, called peers. In this system each peer augments a conventional database management system with an inter-operability layer (i.e. Mappings/ policies) for sharing data and services. Peers exchange data in a pair-wise fashion on-the-fly in response to a query without any centralized control. Generally, the communication link between two peers is insecure and peers create a temporary session while exchanging data.
