About GNUnet

GNUnet is an alternative network stack for building secure, decentralized and privacy-preserving distributed applications. Our goal is to replace the old insecure Internet protocol stack. Starting from an application for secure publication of files, it has grown to include all kinds of basic protocol components and applications towards the creation of a GNU internet.

GNUnet is an official GNU package. GNUnet can be downloaded from GNU (ftp) and the GNU mirrors (ftp).

New Website

As you might have noticed with the recently broken links and maybe a redirect
here, we have a new website.

It's located where this website used to be: gnunet.org

There are some rough edges, but we are already working on improvements.
Some functions are still on old.gnunet.org, like our bibliography section.

This website mainly written in jinja2 and compiled to static html pages.

GSoC 2018 - GNUnet Web-based User Interface

What was done?
In the context of Google Summer of Code 2018, my mentor (Martin Schanzenbach) and I have worked on creating and extending the REST API of GNUnet. Currently, we mirrored the functionality of following commands:


Additionally, we developed a website with the Javascript framework Angular 6 and the design framework iotaCSS to use the new REST API. The REST API of GNUnet is now documented with Sphinx.

irc bot status

As of 2018-08-09 in the early morning, we are having problems with our current IRC bot.
update 2018-08-13: I have started working on a replacement - the drupal bot is not coming back.
We have plans to migrate to a new bot as soon as possible, but hope to restore functionality to the existing one soon enough.

This post will be updated as soon as the bot is back online. The logs themselves are not affected.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
