The objective of writing this chapter is twofold. First, ABM model for the Kademlia is being proposed using complex networks-based and agent-based approaches combination. While developing the model of Kademlia, we will use the already developed complex networks like Line-walking Turtles, Communication-T-T network and Random Network. For validation purpose, we will present a hybrid routing algorithm based on centrality. By this, we can say that a communication has taken place end to end between users. Second, ODD and DREAM are two techniques that we have used for ABM specification. Then, we will also give a comparative analysis of ODD and DREAM. Some of our main contributions are as follows: To model and simulate Kademlia, an agent-based and complex network modeling approach is proposed. ODD specification technique for Kademlia's ABM model. DREAM specification technique for Kademlia's ABM model. An algorithm based on hybrid centrality measure. A comparative analysis of ODD and DREAM specification techniques.
