Government P2P

"The network, dubbed the Infrastructure for Resilient Internet Systems (IRIS), will speed up searches and information transfer over the internet, and aims to foil "Denial of Service" attacks by hackers - in which a web server is swamped with requests for a page until it crashes."

"IRIS is being designed specifically to solve these problems. Its three design criteria are to guarantee:
• that as long as there is no physical break in the network the target file will always be found;
• that adding more information to the network will not affect its performance;
• that machines can be added and removed from the network without any noticeable adverse affects. "
