LionShare P2P Project – Legitimate File-Sharing Among Individuals and Educational Institutions

The LionShare P2P Project is an innovative effort to facilitate legitimate file-sharing among individuals and educational institutions around the world. By using Peer to Peer (P2P) technology and incorporating features such as authentication, directory servers, and owner controlled sharing of files, LionShare promises secure file-sharing capabilities for the easy exchange of image collections, video archives, large data collections, and other types of academic information. In addition to authenticated file-sharing capabilities, the developing LionShare technology will also provide users with resources for organizing, storing, and retrieving digital files. Currently, many academic digital collections remain “hidden” or difficult to access on the Internet. Through the use of LionShare technology, users will be able to find and access these information reservoirs in a more timely and direct manner — employing one rather than multiple searches. LionShare will also provide users with tools to catalog and organize personal files for easier retrievals and enhanced sharing capabilities. This has been added to the Peer to Peer, File Sharing, Grid and Matrix Search Engines Section of Deep Web Research Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
