BigSpeed Computing's BigSpeed Peer-to-Peer SDK 2.0

BigSpeed Computing Inc. announced the release of BigSpeed Peer-to-Peer SDK 2.0. BigSpeed Peer-to-Peer SDK is a set of two ActiveX controls (Agent and Hub) that lets you set up a virtual private peer-to-peer (P2P) network for secure file sharing and messaging.

The transfered data are scrambled using on-the-fly 128-bit AES encryption, without need of SSL certificates. The security is provided in two different modes: symmetric encryption with shared secret key and asymmetric encryption with 1024-bit public/private keys.

The hub is responsible for keeping information on and authentication of online peers. All peers connected to a particular hub build a single private community. Each agent acts as both a client and a server at the same time. Fine grained access control is realized by a group user-oriented permissions. They grant access control privileges to system resources and services in a flexible and secure manner. Two different kind of instant information can be exchanged between peers: alert and chat messages. In addition to standard FTP operations, such as upload, download, rename, delete, etc., the SDK also offers several advanced features.

BigSpeed Peer-to-Peer SDK utilizes an elegant event-driven paradigm for easy integration into Windows applications. A special attention is paid to provide responsive user interface while avoiding multithreading problems and maintaining maximum bandwidth efficiency. Sample applications are included in Visual Basic .NET and Delphi 7. BigSpeed Peer-to-Peer SDK is designed for any programming language that supports ActiveX controls on 32-bit Windows OS.
