In the world of Internet of Things (IoT), promising paradigm such as fog computing has been emerged as an extension of cloud computing infrastructure to provide low latency and better QoS to the end-user specifically for time-sensitive applications. One of the major challenges of these applications is the task offloading, where resource-constraint end-user devices migrate the tasks to the nearby resource-rich computing environment for execution. There are several factors like latency optimization, resource management that need to be addressed for performing the task offloading. In this work, we aim to provide a new offloading technique where latency for task offloading has been optimized by taking Peer-to-Peer (P2P) technology as a basic mode of a network environment for fog computing and also taken P2P file-sharing protocol as a basic mode of offloading technique.
