The objective of the P2PEOPLE project is to research &
develop a P2P collaborative framework and a prototype application
to allow people to form “common interest groups” and provide those
group members with new ways to communicate, collaborate and make business
project aims at providing a set of essential
integrated services that provides to peer-2-peer users the ways to collaborate
in a new business / cooperation processes:
will provide information on which of the existing users in the P2P network
are currently online
matching service, that
allow to publish user interest in the network and find other "compatible"
allow users to vote other user reputation and request user reputation
in the network
(mail) service, that
will allow for synchronous/asynchronous text and multimedia message exchange
between users of the P2People platform
will allow users to join virtual chat rooms in which they can participate
in a conference-like textual message exchange
Sharing service, that
will provide file sharing functionality in the peer-to-peer network
Browsing service, that
will provide the directory browser functionality in the peer-to-peer network
Transfer service, that
will provide file transfer functionality in the peer-to-peer network
§ A screen sharing service, that will allow users to make visible part of their display to remote users in the peer-to-peer network
§ A screen capturing service, that will allow users to give remote control of the computer to other peer in the network
communication service, that
will allow real-time video transmission and videoconferencing functionality
in the peer-to-peer environment.
will allow users to perform secure micro payments in order to pay for
services that other users might be offering in the peer-to-peer network
While most innovation efforts in P2P focus on computer resources
and file sharing, P2PEOPLE focus on people. So the objective is to research
a mechanism to allow users find other users to group with, based on the
idea that both share a “common interest”.
To fulfill the objectives the following problems need to be
a way to allow a user to
publish information about his profile as a description of his interests
and the way to communicate
with other users.
that information in the local user computer rather than in central server
to ensure a higher degree of privacy.
the user enough security and provide him with tools to filter and stop
non desired messages.
§ Provide the technology to create and manage all queries and negotiations between peer in a user transparent way. The system will not require the user initiative to search compatible peers, instead the system will search and negotiate peer relationships based on the rules defined in the user profile.
