The goal of this thesis is the development of a distributed service registry and discovery system for las2peer. Conceptually, it should be built on the aforementioned previous results, namely the service discovery system, the application store and the community success measurement system. Technically, a blockchain-based solution should be developed that both allows and enforces developers to add their services to a community-blockchain, which can be used for authenticating service-origin as well as for inspection of available services throughout the network, including a connection to their success measurement.

In our efforts to support heterogeneous communities with the tools and structures they need, we developed our flagship peer-to-peer community platform las2peer (https://las2peer.org/about). 

In our latest research efforts we developed both a microservice discovery system (http://dbis.rwth-aachen.de/cms/theses/microservice-discovery-support-MDWE/), as well as a concept for an application store based on las2peer technology (http://dbis.rwth-aachen.de/cms/theses/release-please). During the development of these theses, questions came up how to ensure authentication of services and how to ensure that all services in the network are actually available for discovery. Especially with the ability of las2peer to automatically replicate services throughout the network, these questions have a high relevance to communities, both in terms of security as well as in terms of service discovery, which could allow community members to find out about service development and usage by other community members, and even other communities in the las2peer network. This service and community success measurement framework is one part of the las2peer fringe-computing concept and called MobSOS.

The goal of this thesis is the development of a distributed service registry and discovery system for las2peer. Conceptually, it should be built on the aforementioned previous results, namely the service discovery system, the application store and the community success measurement system. Technically, a blockchain-based solution should be developed that both allows and enforces developers to add their services to a community-blockchain, which can be used for authenticating service-origin as well as for inspection of available services throughout the network, including a connection to their success measurement.
