-.- It should not be technical and yet again you speak about sending emails using the POP3 or IMAP protocol? Well, you had me at that point because both protocols are made to retrieve emails...
Sorry, I was thinking SMTP as well, forget to write it on. actually it is a method to update peer info(like IP address) to offline peers, so that they know how to reconnect each other even the IP address has been changed during the offline period. It is possible to implement I think.
After skimming through the first few pages of that ppt made pdf I had exactly no clue what you are suggesting because you continued elaborating pseudo-technicalities. To the date I do not even see why you would want to append the eD2k or KAD network and why I need to transfer some list or other to do just that.
Yes, my fault, I did not mention the reason why we need the pseudo-technicalities.
The problem is using a server to keep peers information (like ed2k) is vulnerable, if servers down or be banned the whole network will not work.
Just for this reason we created KAD. The disadvantages of KAD are:
1. take a long time to train node list when reconnecting to the KAD network;
2. If start without ed2k server, only using www.nodes-dat.com, I personally found it is painful to wait for the useful nodes and there are too many fake or invalid nodes.
3. KAD network can be attacked as this thread
So I want to know if we can improve this by remembering and trusting the nodes(peers). To do this we have to solve these problem:
1. Distinguish each node;
2. Evaluate the nodes if they can be trust;
3. Find and connect trust node.
So I made the PPT try to presenting a solution for the three problems above.
Now I realized that this is also too early to be discussed. The proper question is whether KAD can be improved as the three things above.
