|Presentation:||Friend-to-Friend Private Peer-to-Peer Client|
Peerple is a peer-to-peer client to share personal documents with friends in a secure and reliable way, and to backup these documents on these “friends” Peerple clients. This work is done in tight collaboration with Laurent Viennot (Gang project-team INRIA Paris - Rocquencourt). We have developed the client, with the following functionalities: a web interface allows friends to connect, authentify on a client and access photo albums using an AJAX interface. A server offers a DNS service for the peer-to-peer clients, and a Mail service to notify friends about the presence of new shared files. Finally, the client is able to backup incrementally files on a local hard disk. The prototype has been released at the beginning of 2007 as an open-source project for external contributions. We are working on adding distributed backups and code modularization.
