A peer-to-peer internet chat infrastructure: A major problem with current irc is the centralized server architecture. In the presence of network failures, this leads to network partitions (netsplits). Of course, netsplits cannot be avoided but the problem can be minimized as long as one does not loose the people one is chatting with, or is interested to chat with. The goal of this project is to design "clients" that use the servers only to identify the interested chatters and then maintain peer-to-peer connections with them. Second, any client should be able to act as a server (basically a directory), and users can specify a degree of resilience when connecting to the infrastructure to replicate the information about their presence in more than one server.

It should also allow users to select the servers they want to use, based on the quality of service it can provide (reliability, latency, capacity). Contact: Umar Saif
