Which network model ensures that no computer on the network has more authority than another?
A distributed network model ensures that no computer on the network has more authority than another.
In a distributed network model, all computers are considered equal and have the same authority and responsibilities. No single computer is considered the “hub” or “master” of the network and all computers have the same level of access and control over the shared resources.
This type of network model is also called Peer-to-Peer (P2P) model, in this model, each node on the network acts as both a client and a server, this means that all the devices can communicate with each other directly without the need for a central server.
This model is typically used for file sharing, gaming, and decentralized platforms, where all the devices are connected together and share their resources with each other. P2P networks are more fault-tolerant and scalable than centralized networks, and also provide anonymity, security, and privacy for their users.
Examples of P2P network: BitTorrent, Napster, and Gnutella
