Server-centric architectures such as the Web's suffer from well-known problems related to application size and increasing user requests. Peer-to-peer systems can help address some of the key challenges, but this survey of several current P2P systems shows that dependability remains an open issue. To perform in Internet-scale applications, P2P systems must address the four major properties of dependable systems: scalability, fault-tolerance, security, and anonymity.
