Peergos - A decentralised, secure file storage and social network

  •        136

Peergos is a peer-to-peer encrypted filesystem with secure sharing of files designed to be resistant to surveillance of data content or friendship graphs. It will have a secure email replacement, with some interoperability with email. There will also be a totally private and secure social network, where users are in control of who sees what (executed cryptographically). The name Peergos comes from the Greek word Πύργος (Pyrgos), which means stronghold or tower, but phonetically spelt with the nice connection to being peer-to-peer. Pronuniation: peer-goss (as in gossip).

PeerVPN - the open source peer-to-peer VPN

  •    C

PeerVPN is a software that builds virtual ethernet networks between multiple computers. Such a virtual network can be useful to facilitate direct communication that applications like file sharing or gaming may need. Often, such direct communication is made impossible or very difficult by firewalls or NAT devices.

ipfspics-server - Content-addressable, peer-to-peer method of storing and sharing images on the internet

  •    PHP

ipfs.pics is a open-source and distributed image hosting website. It aims to be an alternative to non-libre image hosting websites such as imgur, flickr and others. It is based on IPFS - the InterPlanetary File System. The whole application runs on the concept of peer to peer connections, which means that instead of hosting the information in a single location, our servers, the data is stored by everyone who wants to. When a picture is put on IPFS, it is given a hash, a 46 characters long digital fingerprint. No other file will have it and if the same file is added twice then their hashes will be exactly the same, which means the picture can still be found on the network simply by knowing the hash, even if our website is down. You can find the hash at the end of a picture URL, just like below.

ipfs-companion - Browser extension that simplifies access to IPFS resources on the web

  •    Javascript

IPFS Companion harnesses the power of your locally running IPFS node (either through the IPFS Desktop app or the command-line daemon) directly inside your favorite Chromium-based or Firefox browser, enabling support for ipfs:// addresses, automatic IPFS gateway loading of websites and file paths, easy IPFS file import and sharing, and more. IPFS is a peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol designed to make the web faster, safer, more resilient, and more open. It enables the creation and dissemination of completely distributed sites and applications that don’t rely on centralized hosting and stay true to the original vision of an open, flat web.

go-libp2p - libp2p implementation in Go

  •    Go

libp2p is a networking stack and library modularized out of The IPFS Project, and bundled separately for other tools to use. libp2p is the product of a long, and arduous quest of understanding -- a deep dive into the internet's network stack, and plentiful peer-to-peer protocols from the past. Building large scale peer-to-peer systems has been complex and difficult in the last 15 years, and libp2p is a way to fix that. It is a "network stack" -- a protocol suite -- that cleanly separates concerns, and enables sophisticated applications to only use the protocols they absolutely need, without giving up interoperability and upgradeability. libp2p grew out of IPFS, but it is built so that lots of people can use it, for lots of different projects.

neutrino - Privacy-Preserving Bitcoin Light Client

  •    Go

Neutrino is an experimental Bitcoin light client written in Go and designed with mobile Lightning Network clients in mind. It uses a new proposal for compact block filters to minimize bandwidth and storage use on the client side, while attempting to preserve privacy and minimize processor load on full nodes serving light clients. The light client synchronizes only block headers and a chain of compact block filter headers specifying the correct filters for each block. Filters are loaded lazily and stored in the database upon request; blocks are loaded lazily and not saved. There are multiple known major issues with the client, so it is not recommended to use it with real money at this point.

Nightweb - An anonymous P2P social network in Clojure

  •    Clojure

Nightweb is an app for Android devices and PCs that connects you to an anonymous, peer-to-peer social network. It is written in Clojure and uses I2P and BitTorrent on the backend. Please see the website for a general overview, and the protocol page for a more in-depth explanation of how it works.All files that originate from this project are dedicated to the public domain. That particularly includes the files in android/src/clojure/net/nightweb, desktop/src/nightweb_desktop, and common/clojure/nightweb (the Android, desktop, and backend code respectively). All third-party code in this project remains under their original licenses. I would love pull requests, and will assume that any Clojure contributions are also dedicated to the public domain.

Chat.onion - Anonymous and fully encrypted peer-to-peer instant messenger for Android using onion routing (via Tor)

  •    Java

Chat.onion is an anonymous and fully encrypted peer-to-peer instant messenger for Android using onion routing (via Tor). Many instant messengers already use encryption to secure message contents, but they can't hide important metadata such as your IP address and who you are communicating with. To hide all your information, including your metadata, identity, and IP address, Chat.onion uses onion routing (Tor) to send each message over several randomly selected proxy servers. Multiple layers of encryption are used to ensure that each proxy only knows it's immediate successor and predecessor, but not the entire message route.
