RT kragen ‏@kragen:

https://github.com/zrm/snow Snow is a replacement for IP using public keys as network addresses.


Packets sent to the key name go to the machine with that key. Key names are independent of the underlying network. Think automatic NAT traversal. End-to-end encryption with no configuration. IPv4-only applications on IPv6-only networks. In general it allows network problems to be solved in one place for everyone with an interface that most applications are already using.

With a DNS system. This looks amazing!

Very cool. With just a little more infrastructure you could probably run a complete darknet with its own shared DNS.

I wonder if this works with TOR? If yes, it would be a second level of security, with TOR making it difficult to track packet source and destination.

I'm compiling it, already running into a few versionitis issues, but... there's still some sort of caching distributed document store that needs to sit on top of this, but this is like... the plumbing of a system similar to RetroShare presented in a way that other apps can sit on top of it.
