The DHT implementation currently forwards lookups to the next peer. The peer having the entry eventually replies directly to the query origin.

That is repeating a decades old mistake. If peer can pretent forwarding this may be abused to mount DoS attacks.

Alternatives

  1. Forward the original signature too.
  2. No forwarding at all, reply with "see other peer".
