Measurement of eDonkey Activity with Distributed Honeypots

Measurement of eDonkey Activity with Distributed Honeypots

> By Oussama Allali, Matthieu Latapy and Clémence Magnien We propose in Measurement of eDonkey Activity with Distributed Honeypots a new way to observe activity in a P2P system. It relies on a set of honeypost, i.e. fake peers which claim to provide some files and record the queries they receive for these files. These […]

Measurement of eDonkey Activity with Distributed Honeypots

Oussama Allali, Matthieu Latapy and Clémence Magnien

Collecting information about user activity in peer-to-peer systems is a key but challenging task. We describe here a distributed platform for doing so on the eDonkey network, relying on a group of honeypot peers which claim to have certain files and log queries they receive for these files. We then conduct some measurements with typical scenarios and use the obtained data to analyze the impact of key parameters like measurement duration, number of honeypots involved, and number of advertised files. This illustrates both the possible uses of our measurement system, and the kind of data one may collect using it.

P2P clients contacting a honeypot

P2P clients contacting a honeypot

> By Oussama Allali, Matthieu Latapy and Clémence Magnien We observe the peers interested in a given file in a P2P system with a honeypot: our peer claims that it provides this file, and then registers the queries it receives from other peers. The plot represents the number of distinct peers observed since the beginning […]
