    • Part I BitTorrents
    • The Basics of BitTorrent BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol designed to distribute large amounts of data. We quot;breakquot; the file being transferred into smaller segments called pieces.
    • The Basics of BitTorrent Initially, a file provider makes his file available to the network. He is called a seed. He then allows others, named peers, to connect and download the file. Each peer who downloads a part of the data makes it available to other peers to download.
    • Exchanging pieces of files

    • Keywords Seed Users that have 100 % of the file(s). Leechers Users that do not have the complete file(s). 0–99 % Peers Seeds and Leechers (another computer on the internet that you connect to and transfer data) Swarm The group of machines that are collectively connected for a particular file.
    • Keywords Torrent A file you receive from the web server (the one that ends in .torrent ) . The file contains information about the data you want to download, not the data itself. Clients A client is a bittorrent program.
    • Keywords Trackers A server that handles and stores the torrent files. In order for everyone to be able to locate one another, there needs to be some centralized location that peers could connect to in order to obtain the other peers' IP addresses. BitTorrent trackers serve as this centralized location. A tracker collects peers’ IP addresses and port numbers to share with other peers connecting to that same swarm.
