Network coordinate systems have gained much attention as they allow for an elegant estimation of distances between nodes in distributed systems. Their most prominent representative is Vivaldi, which is using a mass-spring-damper system to embed peers into a two-dimensional Euclidean coordinate space with an additional height coordinate. In unimpaired(More)
In order to perform private communication over public networks, such as the Internet, several different kinds of virtual overlay networks emerged.
