Abstract

This thesis provides the design and implementation of a secure and resilient communication infrastructure for decentralized peer-to-peer networks. The proposed communication infrastructure tries to overcome limitations to unrestricted communication on today's Internet and has the goal of re-establishing unhindered communication between users. With the GNU name system, we present a fully decentralized, resilient, and privacy-preserving alternative to DNS and existing security infrastructures.
