Decentralized Hosting And Preservation Of Open Data
  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2168-3204.2013.10.1.art00056  Published OnlineJanuary 2013

Open Data Initiatives are hosted in a centralized way despite their encouragement of sharing. Synchronizing the data in a multi master database replication setup enables user contributions from multiple sources. This paper details a proof of concept implementation of a peer-to-peer protocol that enables a decentralized archiving network which does not need a central synchronization database. The protocol provides auditable, tamperproof multi master database replication via a distributed log file. This provides a permanent and formalized way to access the data. All participants can edit their locally and changes are synchronized with the network.
