Demonstrating progress in its peer-to-peer efforts, Intel Wednesday unveiled security software code that other companies can use when developing peer-to-peer applications. Dubbed the Peer-to-Peer Trusted Library, the release includes full API (application programming interface) documentation and provides support for peer authentication, secure storage, encryption and digital signatures. Intel has made the API freely available to developers online.

    Intel says it released the code to spur innovation in the peer-to-peer security market.

    "This is one example, a starting point, that people can use," said Bob Knighten, Intel?s "peer-to-peer evangelist. "Security I think is one of the pervasive issues that peer-to-peer has to address."
