libbrandt GSoC kickoff

Heyho,

I was accepted for a Google Summer of Code project and will be developing an auctioning library. During the community bonding period I have so far read four papers relevant to the topic, choosen a few algorithms with slightly different properties which I want to implement and reconstructed one of them within the pari/gp CLI (see attachment). I also started with a first draft of the library interface which will be published in a git repository shortly.

GNUnet e.V. Assembly 2015

The annual GNUnet e.V. assembly is upon us. We'll meet on December 29th at 20:30 in Hall F at 32c3 in Hamburg. Below is the agenda.

YBTI @ 32c3

The "YBTI/We Fix the Net" assembly" is to be the perfect place at 32c3 for all hackers to do something about replacing today's broken Internet with secure alternatives. We hope to have some talks and panels like in previous years. Details will be posted here closer to the congress, for now, please contact us at wefixthenet@gnunet.org if you are interested to present your work or organize something practical. Topics include:

Video: Reproducible Software Deployment with GNU Guix

Ludovic Courtès presented his vision for future secure operating system distributions using GNU Guix today, including a surprising number of GNUnet references.

Abstract

“It used to work perfectly, then I upgraded something, and somehow...”. Sounds like a déjà vu? Sometimes feel like software deployment is unpredictable? You think reproducible research demands reproducible software deployment? Ever wondered if you can trust your compiler or the integrity of those binary packages you have downloaded?

IETF getting cold feet about P2P Names?

With broad support from the P2P community, we have been trying for a while to follow RFC 6761 to register special use domain names for ".bit", ".exit", ".gnu", ".i2p", ".onion" and ".zkey" to reduce the likelihood of ICANN accidentally creating a conflicting gTLD assignment.
