In this paper we present a technique which enables agents to participate in peer-to-peer (P2P) systems, such as file-sharing networks. Our technique is founded on the definition of lightweight protocols which specify the interactions required by the agent for a specific P2P network. The protocols that we define are executable specifications and can be directly implemented and independently verified. We present a definition of our MAP language for expressing protocols, and show how it can be used to enable participation in a simple P2P file-sharing system.
