Kademlia is a widely successful Distributed Hash Table (DHT) implementation, better known for its use in the BitTorrent protocol. In this paper, we revisit its overlay management separately from the DHT operations to allow it to be used with other distributed abstractions by providing an accurate and consistent view of the k-closest nodes to any given identifier. We then present invariants that avoid the irregularities that are necessary with the original k-bucket design and improve on later… CONTINUE READING
