    Peer-to-peer multicast is promising for large-scale streaming video distribution over the Internet. Viewers contribute their resources to a peer-to-peer overlay network to act as relays for the media streams, and no dedicated infrastructure is required. As packets are transmitted over long, unreliable multipeer transmission paths, it is particularly challenging to achieve consistently high video q... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1849 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper is mainly concerned with multichannel transmission of real-time information such as video over multihop ad hoc links. We propose two multichannel routing protocols. The first is based on single-path routing and aims at suppressing the intrapath interference in a carrier sense multiple access/collision avoidance network. This is achieved by developing a link-partitioning scheme where nod... View full abstract»

    The need for security services, such as confidentiality and authentication, has become one of the major concerns in multimedia communication applications, such as video on demand and peer-to-peer content delivery. Conventional data authentication cannot be directly applied for streaming media when an unreliable channel is used and packet loss may occur. This paper begins by reviewing existing end-...

    Multimedia creation and consumption is highly intensive and makes up the majority of Internet traffic nowadays. End-users are able to share their digital content with each other and to build communities based on interests, which often differ drastically according to location. Distributing these media using a central server can be quite expensive for a content provider. Distributed (peer-to-peer li... View full abstract»
