A measurement study of PPStream

  title={A measurement study of PPStream},
  author={Xiao Su and Linan Chang},
  journal={2008 Third International Conference on Communications and Networking in China},
In this article, we first review the evolution of peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing and media streaming systems, and then focus on one of the most popular P2P-based media streaming services - PPStream. We describe the PPStream protocol discovered through reverse engineering efforts and discuss our measurement study conducted to evaluate three aspects of the system: privacy, locality, and availability. The experiments reveal that PPStream is vulnerable to privacy exploits and is not locality-aware… CONTINUE READING
