Title: Network communication systems and methods

Abstract: Systems and methods for communicating via a network may employ communication devices capable of functioning in a server mode and a client mode. Communication may begin by activating a server mode for a first communication device. The first communication device in the server mode may receive a message from a second communication device, the message comprising an identity associated with the second communication device. The first communication device may retrieve a key associated with the second communication device and verify the identity associated with the second communication device by comparing data in the message from the second communication device with data in the key. A client mode may be activated for the first communication device. The first communication device in client mode may send a message to an address associated with the second communication device, the message comprising an identity associated with the first communication device.
