Another point of contrast between client/server and peer-to-peer networking is the use of the Domain Name System (DNS).
Server computers are typically registered in DNS so that client computers can resolve a name to the IP address of the server computer.
Like X.509 authentication, peer networking authentication relies upon a chain of certificates tracing back to a public key that is trusted.

Therefore, there must be a mechanism to resolve peer names to their addresses that does not rely on DNS.
