Network Coding-Based Gossip

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Gossip is a broadcasting method for distributed systems. In gossip, the node that initiates a broadcast sends the broadcast message to some randomly selected nodes. Upon receiving a message, a node then forwards the message to randomly selected nodes. As a result of repeating this process, the message is eventually propagated through the whole network. An obvious problem with gossip is that it incurs significant message overhead: many nodes receive the identical message multiple times, waisting network resources. To address this problem we propose a network coding-based gossip protocol. In the proposed protocol, a broadcast message is not diffused as it is. Rather, it is divided into some fragments and nodes encode and forward random linear combinations of these fragments. This prohibits nodes from receiving an identical message multiple times and, as a result, increases reliability with less message overhead than the ordinary gossip.
