Abstract: Abstract—The peer-to-peer paradigm is widely used in the distribution of data and documents and direct multimedia communications on the internet. The network nodes, which are concerned in a peer-to-peer network, create an infrastructure that provides and offers a desired functionality or application in a distributed manner. Upcoming communication standards, such as WebRTC, also enable a setup where web browsers can act as peer-to-peer nodes. In this paper we present an algorithm for generating connection graphs of the peers based on WebRTC state events. The essential idea of the algorithm is to collect events, generated by changing a signaling and connection state of peers. The algorithm processes the collected events and generates a connection graph of the peers, which represent the overlay topology of the peer-to-peer application. Additionally we present examples of collected events and corresponding connection graphs.
