Verein zur Förderung von GNUnet e.V.

On December 27th 2013 a group of GNUnet hackers met at 30c3 to create the "Verein zur Förderung von GNUnet e.V.", an association under German law to support GNUnet development. The Amtsgericht München registered the association on the 7th of March under VR 205287.

The association is officially dedicated to supporting research, development and education in the area of secure decentralized networking in general, and GNUnet specifically. This is the official website for the association.

Cryogenic

Cryogenic is a Linux kernel module that allows to reduce energy consumption by means of enabling cooperative clustering of I/O operations among the various applications that make use of the same hardware device. In order to achieve this target, Cryogenic provides an API that enables applications to schedule I/O operations on SCSI and network devices at times where the impact the operations have on energy consumption is small.

Video: Bart Polot on GNUnet CADET and GNUnet Conversation at YBTI/30c3

Here is the video of Bart Polot's talk at YouBrokeTheInternet/30c3 on "GNUnet Conversation". Note that somehow the title got botched to "GNU Telephony", which is simply incorrect as GNU Telephony is GNU's SIP replacement, and that is definitively not what the talk is about. This talk is about GNUnet's CADET routing and the GNUnet Conversation (voice-over-GNUnet) application that we are building with it.

Video: 30c3 talk on "The GNU Name System"

Here is the video of my talk (with help from Florian Dold) at 30c3 on "The GNU Name System". Sadly, the "Secure Name Systems" panel at the same venue was not recorded.

Typo-Protected Public Keys

When users type in public keys (such as the 53-characters of a GNS zone), they might make typos. The usual way to fix typos is to add a checksum, further increasing the length of the sequence that has to be typed in.
