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.

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.

Greetings!

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.

Looking forward for your applications and a great summer of code.

3rd Dev Mumble - Feb 15th, 8pm CET @ gnunet.org

Hi devs,
As planned, next round for the develper Mumble will be on Sunday, Feb 15th, 8pm CET, as usual using the mumble server on gnunet.org. Agenda items include:

  • Newbee introductions: What are you working on?
  • ATS & Transport update: Still unknown unknowns or already known unknowns?
  • Matthias's defense: Agenda bashing for 24th of February in Munich
  • GSoC topic and mentor collection
  • Open Q&A

Meeting notes:

  • Jeff will talk to Tor devs about Hidden Services and GNS
  • Transport/ATS looks better, but TCP-only may still be problematic
  • Matthias will check with Kai for dinner after defense, does not (yet) plan to run away immediately
  • GSoC ideas are being collected, for now:
    • Julius: ABOSS
    • GNS-GnuPG integration
    • Jeff: PANDA Alternative

    More suggestions welcome, extended descriptions should be passed either directly to Giuseppe Scrivano or via Christian. No specific deadline for topics was announced, but generally ASAP, as we also need to find students.
