decentralized networks

  • ZeroNet icon


    Free Mac Windows Linux Web gevent ... Self-Hosted NameCoin Python JavaScript Website

    ZeroNet uses cryptography (Bitcoin library) and BitTorrent DHT (centralized trackers) to build a distributed censorship-resistant network.

    Users can publish static or dynamic sites/applications into ZeroNet and visitors can choose to also serve the application/site. Sites /applications will remain on-line even if it is being served by only 1 peer.

    When a site/app is updated by its owner, all nodes (including previous visitors) serving that site/app, will receive only the incremental updates done to the site content (and in real time).

    Zeronet counts with a build-in Small SQLite iconSQLite database. This makes content-heavy site development easy. The database is also synced with hosting nodes with incremental updates.

    It is based on Small Python iconPython and Small JavaScript iconJavaScript.


  • I2P icon


    Free Mac Windows Linux Android BSD Website

    I2P is an anonymizing network, offering a simple layer that identity-sensitive applications can use to securely communicate. All data is wrapped with several layers of encryption, and the network is both distributed and dynamic, with no trusted parties.

    Many applications are available that interface with I2P, including mail, peer-peer, IRC chat and others.


  • IPFS icon


    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Self-Hosted Website

    IPFS is a global, versioned, peer-to-peer filesystem. It combines good ideas from Git, BitTorrent, Kademlia, SFS, and the web. It is like a single bittorrent swarm, exchanging git objects. IPFS provides an interface as simple as the HTTP web, but with permanence built in. You can also mount the world at /ipfs.IPFS could become a new major subsystem of the internet. If built right, it could complement or replace HTTP.


  • Freenet icon


    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Website

    Freenet is free software which lets you anonymously share files, browse and publish "freesites" (web sites accessible only through Freenet) and chat on forums, without fear of censorship. Freenet is decentralised to make it less vulnerable to attack, and if used in "darknet" mode, where users only connect to their friends, is very difficult to detect.


  • GNUnet icon


    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Website

    GNUnet is a framework for secure peer-to-peer networking that does not use any centralized or otherwise trusted services. A first service implemented on top of the networking layer allows anonymous censorship-resistant file-sharing. Anonymity is provided by making messages originating from a peer indistinguishable from messages that the peer is routing. All peers act as routers and use link-encrypted connections with stable bandwidth utilization to communicate with each other. GNUnet uses a simple, excess-based economic model to allocate resources. Peers in GNUnet monitor each others behavior with respect to resource usage; peers that contribute to the network are rewarded with better service.


  • Dat icon


    Free Mac Linux Electron / Atom Shell JavaScript Website

    Dat is the non-profit, secure, and distributed package manager for data.

    Dat can be used to version data locally, or to share and sync data over the internet. Dat includes an optional peer-to-peer distribution system, meaning that the more widely that a dataset is shared, the faster it is for users to retrieve or sync a copy, and the more redundant that the dataset’s availability becomes.


  • dn42 icon


    Free Linux Android Website

    dn42 is a big dynamic VPN, which employs Internet technologies (BGP, whois database, DNS, etc). Participants connect to each other using network tunnels (GRE, OpenVPN, Tinc, IPsec) and exchange routes thanks to the Border Gateway Protocol...

    dn42 can be used to learn networking and to connect private networks, such as hackerspaces or community networks. But above all, experimenting with routing in dn42 is fun!


  • Librevault icon


    Free Mac Windows Linux Website

    Librevault is an open-source peer-to-peer file synchronization program, designed with convenience and privacy in mind. Our goal is to make a better alternative to BitTorrent Sync and Syncthing.
