Protected Client-to-Client Data Sharing

Data sharing under the client-server model can suffer badly when a large number of clients access a server. This bottleneck can be addressed by enabling peer-to-peer data sharing between clients, usually with incentives. However, in this "hybrid data sharing paradigm," it is challenging to find the "right" peer clients to share data with, and peer clients could be selfish, distrustful, and even malicious.

We designed and developed the mSSL framework that encompasses a set of security and incentive functionalities for hybrid data sharing. Earlier we have also invented the Revere overlay structure that finds the right peer clients to quickly, reliably, and securely disseminate security updates (e.g. an early attack warning).

Here are our selected presentations:
