Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks have become popular for certain
applications and deployments for a variety of reasons, including
fault tolerance, economics, and legal issues.  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.  This document is a product of the P2P
Research Group.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.
