GNS Specification Milestone 1/4

2019-10-04

We are happy to announce the completion of the first milestone for the GNS Specification. The objective is to provide a detailed and comprehensive guide for implementors of the GNU Name System. The initial milestone consists of documenting the cryptographic principles of GNS data structures. This includes the specification of the GNS record wire and serialization formats as well as internationalization.NOTE: The currently specified protocol is planned to be implemented for GNUnet 0.12.

To avoid problems when connecting to GNUnet the operator of a peer needs to update its node by removing the peer ID DSTJBRRKZ8TBW3FGK6B0M5QXWT9WYNZ45H5MCV4HY7ST64Q8T9F0 from the system. Here are two strategies to find copies of the respective file:.. [read more]
