The Shadow Protocol: A More Optimized Version of Gnutella

Muhammad Rashid and Khalid Rashid    

Abstract: This study presents an analysis of the Shadow protocol, a type of peer-to-peer networking model that currently provides decentralized file-sharing capabilities to its users. The shadow protocol has been designed to be a more optimized version of the Gnutella protocol. Initially, the study explains the basics of the peer-to-peer networking and then compares the two types of this networking standard: centralized and decentralized. The shadow protocol is classified as a decentralized model. The Napster and Gnutella protocols are briefly described as well. A detailed description of the Shadow protocol is presented. And a discussion is provided which proves the Shadow protocol to be a more optimized version of the Gnutella protocol.
