A Naming Service for Overlay Networks

I earned a Master of Computer Science degree at the University of Virginia a few years back. My master's project was to write a secure, peer-to-peer name resolution protocol for the HyperCast overlay network system.

There was some flux in life around the time that I finished my degree. Our daughter was born and my academic adviser left the country within a week or two after I presented my work. All of that was followed by a job search, and, well, the report got lost in the shuffle.

So, some four years later, I'm now posting the project material to the web. The HyperCast code, including my project (just search for Greg in the code) is available on SourceForge. Enjoy.
