About GNUnet

GNUnet is a mesh routing layer for end-to-end encrypted networking and a framework for distributed applications designed to replace the old insecure Internet protocol stack.

In other words, GNUnet provides a strong foundation of free software for a global, distributed network that provides security and privacy. Along with an application for secure publication of files, it has grown to include all kinds of basic applications for the foundation of a GNU internet.

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

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.

More details will be posted here closer to the congress. For now, please contact us at wefixthenet@gnunet.org if you would like to present your work or wish to organize a panel or other activity.

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.
