Bit torrent-enhanced distributed internet caching: applying peer-to-peer protocols to enhance performance and scalability of browser-accessible internet resources

Max Rafferty, The College of Wooster


This research proposes the BitTorrent-Enhanced Distributed Internet Caching (BEDIC) system, which extends the existing BitTorrent file-sharing system to access and distribute URL-accessible content such as HTML files using peer-to-peer methods. Our experiments confirm that our BEDIC implementation is able to match the network performance of current client/server and peer-to-peer file access methods while remaining fully scalable to usage and robust to changing network conditions, unlike any current URL-accessible file distribution system.
