Each RPC message includes a random value from the initiator. Otherwise, if the bucket is not full, the new contact is added at the end.

A Kademlia network is characterized by three constants, which we call alphaBand k. A node that would like to join the net must first go through a bootstrap process. Using XOR, the distance between 15 and 25 is 22, and between 25 and 35 it’s From the perspective of a single node, the tree is divided into subtrees.

Kademlia: A Design Specification

Node Lookup Figure 1. The missing k-bucket is a further extension of the routing tree that contains the node ID. Kademlia buckets are generally kept fresh by the traffic of requests traveling through nodes.

Kademlia routing tables are structured so that nodes will have detailed knowledge of the network close to them, and exponentially decreasing knowledge further away. Looking for kadeemlia specific? Kademlia uses parallel and asynchronous queries which avoid timeout delays from failed nodes. A third is to iterate after what seems to be a reasonable delay duration unspecifiedso that the number of probes in flight is some low multiple of alpha.

Also, for popular values that might have many requests, the load in the storer nodes is diminished by having a retriever store this value in some node near, but outside of, the k closest ones. This keeps the network constantly updated and adds resilience to failures or attacks. It also seems node IDs and IDs of “values” ie: It may turn out that a highly unbalanced binary sub-tree exists near the node.


Iteration continues until k nodes have been successfully probed or there has been no improvement. When a k-bucket is full and a new node is discovered for that k-bucketthe least recently seen node in the k-bucket is PINGed.

Within the network, a block of data, a valuecan also be associated with a binary number of the same fixed length B, the value’s key.

A node needing to save a value stores it at the nodes it considers closest to the key associated with the value. It is important that nodeIDs be uniformly distributed; the network design relies upon this.

Further advantages are found particularly in the decentralized structure, which increases the resistance against a denial-of-service protoccol. And what is the real meaning of the “distance” between two nodes? The joining node inserts the bootstrap node into one of its k-buckets.

When the iterations stop, the best k nodes in the results list are the ones in the whole network that are the closest to the desired key. Petar Maymounkov and David Mazieres, “Kademlia: Analysis of a P2P system by Saroiu et al. Kademlia nodes will only insert new nodes in the k-buckets when old nodes leave the system. A Sybil variation is the Spartacus attackwhere an attacker joins the network claiming to have the same nodeID as another kafemlia.

Given the very large address space, this means that bucket zero has only one possible member, the key which differs from the nodeID only in the high order bit, and for all practical purposes is never akdemlia, except perhaps in testing.


Douceur’s solution is a requirement ksdemlia all nodes get their nodeIDs from a central server which is responsible at least for making sure that the distribution of nodeIDs is even. It seems best to add these procedures and other protocols to what we call here the Kademlia protocol.

Nodes that can go in the n th list must have a differing n th bit from the node’s ID; the first n-1 bits of the candidate ID must match those of the node’s ID. When a new node joins the system, it must store any KV pair to which it is one of the k-closest.

Kademlia: A Design Specification

The node ID is typically a large random number that is chosen with the goal of being unique for a particular node see UUID. If Kademlia used e. This includes store and retrieval operations and even helping other nodes to find a key. Because the value is returned from nodes farther away from the key, this alleviates possible “hot spots”. In fact, the node ID provides a direct map to file hashes and that node stores information on where to obtain the file or resource.

A node needing a value searches for it at the nodes it considers closest to the key. Otherwise, if no value has been found, the list of k closest contacts is returned to the caller.
