Abstract

Peer-to-Peer (p2p) networks are common in several areas by now. Besides the well-known file sharing platforms, p2p overlays also emerge as a basis for decentralized social networks. In these, the overlay is used as robust storage for several kinds of social information. With gaining relevance, attackers might have an interest in tampering the functionality of the overlay. In this paper we investigate the routing attacks on the distributed hash table Pastry that we use as basis in our p2p social network LifeSocial. We determine through simulations the impact of routing attacks on the performance of the overlay.
