Torrents are commonly used for file sharing, but could they be used in a following scenario: Person A has a client installed and has registered on a network. Person A requires a specific service (i.e. a freelance ghostwriter) Persons B, C, D, and E are all registered on the network as ghostwriters through individual identifiers. When Person A executes a query, he gets a list with Persons B, C, D, and E. Person A than selects a single user from the list by clicking on the link. The query returns Person B's portfolio and reviews with the link to engage in a direct communication via an IRC-type of software. You can guess where I'm going with this. I'm wondering if such a system could be coded and how secure would it be via HTTPS (without VPN) because I'm certain that the additional step of creating a VPN would be a drag and ultimate deterrence. The point is to eliminate a middleman using a no-fuss system for less technically literate users. Hence, the torrent tracker. Thanks!
