About GNUnet

GNUnet is an alternative network stack for building secure, decentralized and privacy-preserving distributed applications. Our goal is to replace the old insecure Internet protocol stack. Starting from an application for secure publication of files, it has grown to include all kinds of basic protocol components and applications towards the creation of a GNU internet.

GNUnet is an official GNU package. GNUnet can be downloaded from GNU and the GNU mirrors.

Rust APIs for GNUnet services

There are a variety of GNUNet APIs that should be exposed in the Rust wrappers. Implementing these will require extending the port of GNUNet utils written by Andrew Cann and Kelong Cong.

YBTI / We Fix the Net session at 33c3

At 33c3 the GNUNet & pEp assembly will host a "YBTI/We Fix the Net" session with a series of talks of developing secure alternatives to current internet protocols. We might hold an organized discussion or panel as well.

Reverse lookups in GNS

Motivation
DNS allows to resolve the name of an IP address. This is sometimes called "reverse lookup". In fact, it is actually "normal" resolution of a PTR record. The name of such a record would be, for example, 4.4.8.8.in-addr.arpa. The .arpa TLD is managed by IANA.

This blogpost is meant to spread ideas that have been exchanged via private email and might be interesting for a broader audience. If you feel like you have useful comments, don't hesitate to do so.

This short post is to announce that, among other packages, you can now build and install GNUnet (and gnunet-gtk, gnurl) on Gentoo as easy as:
