telehash

Privacy by Default

A secure wire protocol powering a decentralized overlay network for apps and devices ⚡

What

It works by having every application generate its own unique public-key based address (hashname) that can send and receive small encrypted packets of JSON (with optional binary payloads), and provides an automatic routing system based on Kademlia, a proven and popular Distributed Hash Table.

Demo

It's very much in the R&D stages yet, but check out the field-test utility for a simple demo, or try one of the libraries.

Status

The current spec is implemented in a few languages (any help here would be great!) and prototype apps are being created to test it. Questions can be directed at twitter, or to Jeremie Miller directly.
