[freehaven-dev] resource allocation and flooding
If we are going to do a chapter on the subject of flood control and
resource management, then we should start assembling some references.
Then we can make an outline of what we want to cover.
I am thinking that our references will include
* Moni Naor (and somebody else) 1991 "Pricing via Processing"
* Adam Back's "hashcash"
* Jakobsson and Juels "Proofs of Work and Bread Pudding"
* all the papers they cite (like the one relating proofs of work
to program checking)
* Brainard and Juels "Client-Side Puzzles"
* SYN cookies
* Akamai-style caching
Roger, you mentioned that you knew of some practical efforts
Also, I think I may turn the long-ish e-mail I sent a week or so ago into
my next Crossroads article. That will overlap with this a little bit,
but will be much shallower.
