  • Patent number: 10003644
    Abstract: According to a peer-to-peer protocol, a peer-to-peer network includes multiple clubs and multiple peers that receive content distributed by a source of the network. Each of the plurality of peers is part of at least two of the clubs. As content is generated, the source divides the content into multiple data blocks and assigns each data block to a club. Each data block is transmitted to peers that belong to the club assigned to the data block. When a peer in a club receives a data block assigned to that club, the peer distributes the data block to other peers in the club. Additionally, the peer transmits the data block to peers in other clubs. Also, the peer receives data blocks assigned to other clubs from peers that are not members of the club.

  • Patent number: 9887839
    Abstract: In some embodiments, each client device in the network has a private key and a public key. For two client devices to securely exchange information, each computes a shared secret based on its own private key and the other's public key. The client devices use the shared secret to generate a shared secret key pair. The shared secret public key is used as a key by each client device to store data in a public key-value data store to share with the other client device. The shared data is signed using the shared secret key pair. The shared data may also be encrypted using the shared secret key pair. Each client device uses the shared secret public key to retrieve the data from the public key-value data store. Each client device uses the shared secret key pair to verify and decrypt the shared data.
