About GNUnet

GNUnet is a framework for secure peer-to-peer networking that does not use any centralized or otherwise trusted services. Our high-level goal is to provide a strong free software foundation for a global network that provides security and in particular respects privacy.

GNUnet started with an idea for anonymous censorship-resistant file-sharing, but has grown to incorporate other applications as well as many generic building blocks for secure networking applications. In particular, GNUnet now includes the GNU Name System, a privacy-preserving, decentralized public key infrastructure.

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

Scheduled maintenance of gnunet.org

gnunet.org may be temporarily offline between 3rd July 2015 15:00 CEST- 6th July 2015 09:00 CEST due to planned maintenance of the underlying infrastructure. This downtime implies that this website, subversion server, hostlist server, Mumble server, and your email (if you are using @gnunet.org) will all be unavailable during the maintenance period. Other services such as IRC (#gnunet) and mailing lists are not effected.

There is a slight possibility that the downtime is going to be longer than expected. If that happens to be the case, it will be informed via mailing list.

6th Dev Mumble - April 27th, 9pm CEST @ gnunet.org

Hi devs,

On the 27th we get to officially announce the results from the GSoC application process to the students, so we should probably use this opportunity to also have a first discussion with those that have been selected. So, let's have the 6th develper Mumble on Monday, April 27th, 9pm CEST, as usual using the Mumble server on gnunet.org. Agenda items include:

  • GSoC announcements and planning
  • GNUnet 0.10.2 release: To CADET or not to CADET?

I hope all GSoC applicants, mentors and Bart can make it, naturally everybody is welcome to join.

Video: 31c3: We Fix the Net

In December 2014 we organized the "We Fix The Net" workshop at 31c3. You can now finally find the videos from the talks that we were allowed to record below.

5th Dev Mumble - March 20th, 9pm CET @ gnunet.org

Hi devs,

The 5th develper Mumble will be on Friday, March 20th, 9pm CET, as usual using the mumble server on gnunet.org. Agenda items include:

  • GSoC application deadline is March 27th, students should discuss their proposals with us!
  • GNUnet 0.10.2 release: known bugs still fix vs. bugs to add to release notes

Before the meeting (if possible) students should upload their GSoC proposal to Melange, and it would be great if all known open bugs were entered into the bugtracker, and all known resolved bugs marked as resolved in the bugtracker.

We are participating in GSoC 2015!


GNUnet is participating in this year's GSoC under the GNU umbrella. Our project ideas are listed here: https://www.gnu.org/software/soc-projects/ideas-2015.html#gnunet.

You are encouraged to ask questions about the project ideas and involve in discussions with us on our mailing list: gnunet-developers@gnu.org. You can also find most of us on Freenode IRC: #gnunet; note that our IRC channel may have some delay so please be patient.
