Reverse lookups in GNS

Motivation
DNS allows to resolve the name of an IP address. This is sometimes called "reverse lookup". In fact, it is actually "normal" resolution of a PTR record. The name of such a record would be, for example, 4.4.8.8.in-addr.arpa. The .arpa TLD is managed by IANA.

GNUnet for Gentoo

In summer 2015 I started to package GNUnet for Gentoo as contributor to the youbroketheinternet-overlay.

This short post is to announce that, among other packages, you can now build and install GNUnet (and gnunet-gtk, gnurl) on Gentoo as easy as:

GHM 2016 is over. However, thanks to Alain Crenn's excellent recording work, you can find the recorded talks here.

(We also made them available to audio-video of GNU, but they have not yet posted them for some reason.)

libbrandt GSoC final evaluation

The Google Summer of Code is about to end and it's time for an update on the libbrandt development.

The code can be cloned from this repository:
git clone git://gnunet.org/libbrandt

Rust implementation of GNUnet with GSoC - Final-term

This is the final week of the gnunet-rs project with Google Summer of Code. It has been challenging but also exceptionally rewarding. I hope to explain the final product and then touch on the future work. The repository can be found here, and my previous blog post here.

libbrandt GSoC midterm status update

Heyho,

the GSoC midterm evaluation finished this week and it's time for a status update on the libbrandt auctioning library project.

In the past few weeks we decided to switch from RSA like crypto to Ed25519 due to performance reasons and it's generally more modern approach. Therefore we don't use libpari anymore, but libgcrypt instead. Ed25519 also has no need to validate each input value from other protocol participants.

Rust implementation of GNUnet with GSoC - Mid-term progress

The GSoC mid-term evaluation is happening now, so this is a good time to write up the work I've done so far. My contributions are threefold. The files mentioned below can be found in the async branch (https://github.com/kc1212/gnunet-rs/tree/async).
