Peer-to-Peer (P2P) technology is an active research area of next-generation networks, which guide the network computer shift from centralized mode to distributed style. The core of network applications spreads from a central server to the edge of the terminal equipment. P2P technology has been widely used in file-sharing, distributed computing and streaming media technology. This paper describes the P2P technology’s definition, features and key technologies, focused on the status of the application of P2P technology and the problems of P2P technology in the final outlook the development of P2P technology’s prospect.
