Abstract: In recent years, BitTorrent (BT) has become the most popular peer-to-peer file sharing protocol. However, in spite of its popularity, the protocol has many vulnerabilities that can be exploited by strategic peers. Some recent work studied the trade-offs involved in BitTorrent algorithm, but the exploration of the design space has not been comprehensive. In the dissertation, we propose a new taxonomy-based approach for analyzing the trade-offs in a practical implementation of the BT protocol and investigate these trade-offs in the protocol design space. Finally, we propose two key design principles we gleaned from our experience working with various BT clients: (i) keeping promises and (ii) keeping information up-to-date.
