efficent full implementation of the bittorent mainline dht

Project description

The aim of btdht is to provide a powerful implementation of the Bittorrent mainline DHT easily extended to build application over the DHT. The author currently uses it to crawl the dht and has been able to retrieve more than 200.000 torrents files a day.

The implementation is fully compliant with the BEP5 and the kademlia paper [1] (with a predominance of the BEP5 over the paper) For example, this implementation uses a bucket-based approach for the routing table.
