This project details the design and implementation of a decentralized backend for the COBS Firefox add-on. The departure from a client-server architecture for the COBS add-on provides obvious cost savings by eliminating the need for servers and also provides insights into ongoing research ideas regarding P2P data storage. The goal of this project is to implement a DHT for the storage and retrieval of COBS data. The DHT implementation should allow for the extending of appending of new data with existing data. The implementation should also feature data replication for fault tolerance. Lastly, data accuracy should be preserved among the replicated copies of the data.
