Timing Analysis for Inferring the Topology of the Bitcoin Peer-to-Peer Network
2016 Intl IEEE Conferences on Ubiquitous Intelligence & Computing, Advanced and Trusted Computing, Scalable Computing and Communications, Cloud and Big Data Computing, Internet of People, and Smart World Congress (UIC/ATC/ScalCom/CBDCom/IoP/SmartWorld)
Flooding Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks form the basis of services such as the electronic currency system Bitcoin. The decentralized architecture enables robustness against failure. However, knowledge of the network's topology can allow adversaries to attack specific peers in order to, e.g., isolate certain peers or even partition the network. Knowledge of the topology might be gained by observing the flooding process, which is inherently possible in such networks, and performing a timing analysisdoi:10.1109/uic-atc-scalcom-cbdcom-iop-smartworld.2016.0070 dblp:conf/uic/NeudeckerAH16 fatcat:mrobknoaa5ab7nymfusn7l4cty
