Many P2P systems have already been proposed in the literature, but only
very few of them are truly self-organizing in a sense that they can
recover from any state. While certain degenerate states might be very
rare, and may require major attacks to occur, it would nevertheless be
much safer to use these systems if we knew that they would be able to
recover from any bad event without human intervention. In theory, a
system that can recover from any initial state is called
self-stabilizing. While many self-stabilizing algorithms have already
been proposed for static distributed systems, not many constructions for
self-stabilizing dynamic distributed systems are known. In my
presentation, I will present a rigorous base for the design of such
systems which is based on our insights that we have gained from our
various self-stabilizing constructions for P2P systems.
