- https://github.com/Tribler/py-ipv8 - IPv8: an amalgamation of peer-to-peer communication functionality from Dispersy and Tribler, developed over the last 13 years by students and employees of the Delft University of Technology. The IPv8 library allows you to interface with the existing Dispersy network to build your own applications.
- TomP2P - a DHT with additional features, such as storing multiple values for a key. Each peer has a table (either disk-based or memory-based) to store its values. A single value can be queried / updated with a secondary key. The underlying communication framework uses Java NIO to handle many concurrent connections.

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer_Name_Resolution_Protocol - a peer-to-peer protocol designed by Microsoft. PNRP enables dynamic name publication and resolution, and requires IPv6. PNRP is a distributed name resolution protocol allowing Internet hosts to publish "peer names" and corresponding IPv6 addresses and optionally other information. Other hosts can then resolve the peer name, retrieve the corresponding addresses and other information, and establish peer-to-peer connections.

Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector Routing (DSDV) is a table-driven routing scheme for ad hoc mobile networks based on the Bellman–Ford algorithm. It was developed by C. Perkins and P.Bhagwat in 1994. The main contribution of the algorithm was to solve the routing loop problem. Each entry in the routing table contains a sequence number, the sequence numbers are generally even if a link is present; else, an odd number is used. The number is generated by the destination, and the emitter needs to send out the next update with this number. Routing information is distributed between nodes by sending full dumps infrequently and smaller incremental updates more frequently.
It is a reactive routing protocol, meaning that it establishes a route to a destination only on demand. In contrast, the most common routing protocols of the Internet are proactive, meaning they find routing paths independently of the usage of the paths. AODV is, as the name indicates, a distance-vector routing protocol. AODV avoids the counting-to-infinity problem of other distance-vector protocols by using sequence numbers on route updates, a technique pioneered by DSDV. AODV is capable of both unicast and multicast routing.
- Bmx6 is a routing protocol for Linux based operating systems.
Babel is based on the ideas in Destination-Sequenced Distance Vector routing (DSDV), Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV), and Cisco's Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), but it uses a variant of Expected Transmission Count (ETX) link cost estimation rather than a simple hop-count metric. It employs several techniques to ensure the absence of routing pathologies, such as routing loops. Babel operates on IPv4 and IPv6 networks. It has been reported to be a robust protocol and to have fast convergence properties.
Two implementations of Babel are freely available: the standalone sample implementation, and a version that is integrated into the Quagga routing suite. The version integrated into Quagga allows for authentication.
- https://www.open-mesh.org/projects/batman-adv/wiki/DistributedArpTable-technical - a Distributed Hash Table aimed to store ARP entries and to allow nodes to perform fast lookup operations. All the operations in the DHT (get and store) are performed on a set of nodes computed by means of a distributed hash function which input value is an IPv4 address.

- https://github.com/nasa/meshNetwork - The Mesh Network Communication System is a peer-to-peer communication network architecture that enables communication between network nodes of various types. The initial primary goal of the system was to enable communication between small formations of cubesats or other small satellites, but the basic mesh architecture is applicable to data exchange between network assets of any type. The system has been flight tested on formations of small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) and shown to provide low latency data throughput for dynamic flight environments.
