This paper discusses the efficiency of audits as incentives for reducing free-riding in P2P storage applications, that is, lessening the number of peers that can store their data without contributing to the storage infrastructure. Audits are remote data verifications that can also be used to

decide whether to cooperate with a given peer based on its behavior. We demonstrate how an audit-based strategy can dominate or outperform the freeriding strategy by exhibiting the equilibria of our evolutionary game theoretical model of a P2P storage application.
