Abstract [en]

IPFS claims to be the replacement of HTTP and aims to be used globally. However, our study shows that in terms of scalability, performance and security, IPFS is inadequate. This is a result from our experimental and qualitative study of transparency of IPFS version 0.4.13. Moreover, since IPFS is a distributed file system, it should fulfill all aspects of transparency, but according to our study, this is not the case. From our small-scale analysis, we speculate that nested files appear to be the main cause of the performance issues and replication amplifies these problems even further.
