Ed Felten and Alex Halderman over at Freedom to Tinker wrote the world's smallest P2P application in 15 lines of Python. Fifteen lines of anything can be pretty obfuscated, so Richard Jones clarified the intent of the code. The code can be run as a server (serving its own files and connecting to other servers to also server their files) or as a client (able to connect to and download from a network of servers). Connections are password-protected.
