BitTorrent is one of the most popular peer to peer (P2P) protocols used for downloading large sized files over internet. Success of BitTorrent relies heavily upon the peers contributing to the protocol by uploading the partially (or fully) downloaded files to other peers. However, it is matter of common observation that very often a peer is found only downloading large files and not allowing uploading of files so as to minimize bandwidth utilization at its own end. Such peers are referred as… Expand
