telehash

JSON+UDP+DHT=Freedom

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

What

It works by sending and receiving small encrypted bits of JSON (with optional binary payloads) via UDP using an efficient 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 in node-telehash for a simple demo.

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.
