演讲摘要:Distributed Hash Tables (DHTs) are a widely-used building block for large-scale distributed systems. They efficiently route requests over an overlay network to the node responsible for a given key. A long-sting open problem with DHTs is defending against Sybil attack, in which an adversary creates many false identities in order to increase its influence deny service to honest participants.Defending against this attack is challenging because (1) in an open network, creating many fake identities is inexpensive; (2) an attacker can subvert periodic routing table maintenance to increase its influence over time; (3) specific keys can be targeted by clustering attacks. As a result, without centralized admission control, existing DHTs cannot provide strong availability guarantees. This talk describes Whānau, a new DHT routing protocol, which is both efficient strongly resistant to the Sybil attack.
