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.

Heartbleed

gnunet.org's OpenSSL installation used to be vulnerable to Heartbleed. Naturally we updated the code on the server shortly after the vulnerability was disclosed, and we have now also updated the private key. Users with logins on gnunet.org are nevertheless urged to update their passwords.

Verein zur Förderung von GNUnet e.V.

On December 27th 2013 a group of GNUnet hackers met at 30c3 to create the "Verein zur Förderung von GNUnet e.V.", an association under German law to support GNUnet development. The Amtsgericht München registered the association on the 7th of March under VR 205287.

The association is officially dedicated to supporting research, development and education in the area of secure decentralized networking in general, and GNUnet specifically. This is the official website for the association.

Cryogenic

Cryogenic is a Linux kernel module that allows to reduce energy consumption by means of enabling cooperative clustering of I/O operations among the various applications that make use of the same hardware device. In order to achieve this target, Cryogenic provides an API that enables applications to schedule I/O operations on SCSI and network devices at times where the impact the operations have on energy consumption is small.

Video: Bart Polot on GNUnet Mesh and GNUnet Conversation at YBTI/30c3

Here is the video of Bart Polot's talk at YouBrokeTheInternet/30c3 on "GNUnet Conversation". Note that somehow the title got botched to "GNU Telephony", which is simply incorrect as GNU Telephony is GNU's SIP replacement, and that is definitively not what the talk is about. This talk is about GNUnet's MESH routing and the GNUnet Conversation (voice-over-GNUnet) application that we are building with it.
