Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks offer higher robustness against failure,
easier configuration and are generally more economical than their
client-server counterparts. It has therefore become reasonable for
resource consuming and typically centralized applications like Voice
over IP (VoIP) and, in general, realtime communication to adapt and
exploit the benefits of P2P. Such a migration needs to address a new
set of P2P specific security problems. This document describes some
of the known issues found in common P2P networks, analyzing the
relevance of such issues and the applicability of existing solutions
when using P2P architectures for realtime communication.
