Bit-Torrent Hashing And Chunk Technology - Dedup?


Recommended Posts

Hi, are there any bit-torrent geeks who have intimate knowledge of the HASH process which takes places when a torrent is created? For example how the file is broken into 256k (or other size) chunks, and the hash is used to protect the file contents. 

I am looking for someone who may be on the developer level, who I can bounce some ideas off of which I think may be a great addition to the technology. I am a storage (SAN/NAS) expert and based on my knowledge of ZFS filesystems and "dedup" I have thought of ways to possibly incorporate this into bit torrent tech. I would like to discuss to solidify the idea and understand what sort of obstacles I may encounter.

If anyone is available I would much appreciate it!
