DDoS spam blocklist distributed P2P


This paper introduces the high-level design for a novel distributed spam blocklist system based on Peer to-Peer architecture. Deployed on the Internet, this blocklist would be resistant to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks without requiring costly investments in server resources. Digital signatures make widespread network participation possible without compromising data integrity. This paper offers a much-needed solution for serving spam blocklists in hostile environments and outlines the constituent software and protocols required. The proposed system requires minimal modification to existing servers, as it can operate alongside current software.
