Is this list still in use?

I've found a curious pattern with the mainline DHT that seems to spam very low numbered node ids with find_node requests.

They are in the pattern of "0000xxxx0000xxxx0000xxxx0000xxxx0000xxxx" where 'x' is a random hex digit.

Does anyone have any thoughts/comments?

It's typically used by supporting clients to obtain the specific file from the torrent via the ed2k or gnutella networks used by emule and other clients.

Proper behavior when dealing with it is to include it in the calculation of the infohash (since it's included in the info dictionary) and NOT discard it.

http://wiki.depthstrike.com/index.php/P2P:Protocol:Specifications:Optional_Hashes covers what ones exist and what they're used for.

Question about uTorrent extensions (vote and ut_comment)

Hello,

I have some questions about the uTorrent dht-vote and the ut_comment extensions.

It would be great if someone of the uTorrent team could shed some light into this:

#1: Vote:

I've noticed that some uTorrent peers seem to re-send their (non-zero) vote quite often: Some peers even
re-send the vote each 60 seconds.
Is this intentional?

#2: ut_comment:

msg_type=0 : What's the meaning of the 64 byte 'filter' value?

msg_type=1:

The reply that i get looks like this:

          "comments" => [
                          {
                            "like" => 0,
                            "owner" => "",
                            "timestamp" => "1331283959",
                            "text" => "great"
                          },
                          {
                            "like" => 0,
                            "owner" => "",
                            "timestamp" => 25193189,
                            "text" => "yeah!"
                          }
                        ],
          "msg_type" => 1

Ok: msg_type, like and text are obvious, but what is the purpose of 'owner' and what is the meaning of
'timestamp' ?

The value of timestamp seems to be very variable and doesn't look like a real (unix-)timestamp: it ranges
from 500000 up to 4000000000000000000.

Thanks and regards,
 Adrian

DHT: 'Zo' Client

Hello,

I've noticed a strange client that identifies itself as 'Zo\x00\x05' (and sometimes \x04).
Does someone have an idea on what this client is?

The client creates quite some DHT traffic and seems to like IPv6 for some strange reason:
More than 50% of all queries received via IPv6 are sent by this client.
(However: Most source IPs are Teredo addresses).

These clients are also sending announces with bogus info hashes (google doesn't know about them -> they
don't seem to belong to a real torrent).
such as '8eaaaba009ce93f2a678d9fb6dcd39170c5fc1e0':

All clients 'announced' to this info_hash are also using the ZO brand and seem to speak some sort of the
BitTorrent protocol...
..but they do not support ut_metadata :-/

So what is this? Is it some kind of Botnet?

The DHT-Queries look normal:

          "y" => "q",
          "a" => {
                   "id" => "7\335\234H\340\177\235\374\332\246\325\341Tc\303\373\203`WK",
                   "token" => "r\22!\ <at> #q\231#\26\$\$\230\30%\203\ <at> W",
                   "port" => 30121,
                   "info_hash" => "\217\223\353\301O\376\27\nk/\371\352I\314]n\312\21\276\237",
                   "seed" => 1
                 },
          "q" => "announce_peer",
          "v" => "Zo\0\5",
          "t" => "\37n"
        };

          "y" => "q",
          "a" => {
                   "want" => [
                               "n6"
                             ],
                   "id" => "L\236\332%\242\264kW\347b\220\256\237\354\310s\271\225}\20",
                   "noseed" => 1,
                   "info_hash" => "\216\252\253\240\t\316\223\362\246x\331\373m\3159\27\f_\301\340",
                   "scrape" => 1
                 },
          "q" => "get_peers",
          "v" => "Zo\0\5",
          "t" => "D\220"
        };

 Adrian

Privacy issues with P2P protocols

Hi,

I would like to point you to a recent work we made that we believe
might be of interest to the BitTorrent/P2P community.

In this work that will be presented at IMC'11, we show what we believe
to be a significant privacy issue for most P2P protocols.

-We show that leveraging on Skype, we can map a social identity (name,
age, location, email address, etc.) to an IP address fully
inconspicuously. This attack works for all (500M) Skype users. This is
severe as an attacker does not need the ISP support (that an
individual cannot usually get) to retrieve the social identity linked
to an IP address.

-We show that we can then follow the mobility of a Skype user, and we
  found that we can indeed observe real mobility patterns for a large
  fraction of Skype users.

-Finally, we were able to link a Skype identity to a list of
  BitTorrent downloads even if the user is behind a NAT or a proxy (we
  use the predictability of the IP-ID in IP headers to make sure that
  two different applications are running on the same host).

That attack described uses Skype, but would also work with several
other popular VoIP systems.

All details are available here:

Regards,
Arnaud.

The submission deadline of the 2nd IEEE Internacional Workshop of Smart Communication Protocols and Algorithms (IEEE SCPA 2012 - Summer)" has been extended to 07 January 2012.


To be in line with other IEEE ICC 2012 workshops, the submission deadline of the 2nd IEEE Internacional
Workshop of Smart Communication Protocols and Algorithms (IEEE SCPA 2012 - Summer)" has been extended to
07 January 2012.

If you have already submitted a paper to the workshop, you can update your paper bebore the new submission deadline.

-------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS -----------------

The 2nd IEEE Internacional Workshop of Smart Communication Protocols and Algorithms (IEEE SCPA 2012 - Summer)
June 10-15, 2012, Ottawa, CANADA
In conjunction with IEEE ICC 2012
http://scpa.it.ubi.pt/2012

Selected papers will be invited to the Special Issue on Smart Protocols and Algorithms of the
International Journal Network Protocols and Algorithms (ISSN 1943-3581)

Communication protocols and algorithms are needed to communicate network devices and exchange data
between them. The appearance of new technologies usually comes with a protocol procedure and
communication rules that allows data communication while taking profit of this new technology. Recent
advances in hardware and communication mediums allow proposing new rules, conventions and data
structures which could be used by network devices to communicate across the network. Moreover, devices
with higher processing capacity let us include more complex algorithms that can be used by the network
device to enhance the communication procedure.

Smart communication protocols and algorithms make use of several methods and techniques (such as machine
learning techniques, decision making techniques, knowledge representation, network management,
network optimization, problem solution techniques, and so on), to communicate the network devices to
transfer data between them. They can be used to perceive the network conditions, or the user behavior, in
order to dynamically plan, adapt, decide, take the appropriate actions, and learn from the consequences
of its actions. The algorithms can make use of the information gathered from the protocol in order to sense
the environment, plan actions according to the input, take consciousness of what is happening in the
environment, and take the appropriate decisions using a reasoning engine. Goals 
 such as decide which scenario fits best its end-to-end purpose, or environment prediction, can be
achieved with smart protocols and algorithms. Moreover, they could learn from the past and !
 use this knowledge to improve futur
e decisions.

In this workshop, researchers are encouraged to submit papers focused on the design, development,
analysis or optimization of smart communication protocols or algorithms at any communication layer.
Algorithms and protocols based on artificial intelligence techniques for network management, network
monitoring, quality of service enhancement, performance optimization and network secure are included
