Awesome, thank you :) I'm very new to the community, but I've spent time in other privacy communities and have several years of software development experience. Just getting my bearings here in i2p.

That's always been the plan. NTCP 2 will have been out for 6 months, so time to turn off 1, which is easier to identify in traffic classification. See proposal 111 for all the background on why we did NTCP 2.

Any particular reason for disabling it?

Haven't made final decision yet but we're considering disabling NTCP 1 for 0.9.40.

If we do disable it in an upcoming dev build, clever people may able to tell that your IP is running a dev build by looking in the netdb.

To prevent this, put the following in advanced config:

i2np.ntcp1.enable=true

You can do it now, you don't have to wait until we disable it. Of course, then remove the config after 0.9.40 is out.

I'll post here if we actually do decide to disable it and check it in.

The war on privacy is something that truly astonishes me in the Western world. Anti-privacy measures can be described only as a direct attempt at control. Control over the population. Sovereignty has been a fundamental philosophy, at this point, for hundreds of years. The idea that the internet (which I, without hyperbole, consider to be mankind's greatest innovation since agriculture) is what most palpably threatens that sovereignty terrifies me.

Privacy is the primary catalyst for liberty. It's inevitable to some extent, so any attempt to limit it will only perpetuate its other manifestations. P2P as a generalized concept cannot be stopped, and as such we will always have something. This is mostly problematic on principle, but it is problematic nonetheless.

A major problem here seems to be that in an effort to stop crime, politicians are ignoring the problem itself and shifting their focus to one that is only vaguely related and much broader than their perception makes it. The Prohibition attempted to address the alcohol problem in the US by banning the substance entirely, and it was a terrible idea. To me, this is reminiscent of that. I just wish they had the ability to see it from that perspective.

I don't think it will happen through legislation. To many jobs tied to monitoring, attacks, development etc.... It is a gold mine for software, hardware, intelligence contractors. It is like peace and harmony in the real world. What are the chances... 0 That is a zero not a capital "O".

On the attack side there are a lot of attacks on TB downloads and Tails. A lot more than usual.
Attacks on Key servers and DNS are at an all time high. Even OpenNic and Blockchain DNS are often blocked from my entry points.

The good news is i2p is doing well. Maybe the calm before the storm... No problems with the downloads or the keys. Yes the usual blocking, constriction, profile breaking etc. A lot less than the usual.

>Something that doesn't concern us;

Big mistake in my opinion, guess what will be next on the agenda once they are through with that ? We should try to preserve the few freedoms that still exist.

An interesting and worth reading political article (and this should not be taken as condescending). You emphasize in it the "free society", as if it is a fixed term. Also the founders of I2P were taken with the idea of a "free society". Unfortunately, they don't explain what they understand by it and retreat to the technical aspect. And so it happens that everyone has his own individual idea of a free society and wants to live it out.

There is not much news on this topic at the moment, the predominant topic is the EU copyright reform (Article 11 and 13), keyword uploadfilter. Something that doesn't concern us; we can even spread terrorism as memes.

Just posted on this at my blog redliberty.i2p and http://co4edoxfpapksavjpbkd4h33s6pijr6xyfioqdbb... if anyone is interested (not to self promote but this really makes me angry)


Privacy, after freedom of speech, is the only real prerequisite to civil liberty in the digital age because "freedom is always the freedom of the dissenters, of the one who thinks differently" (Rosa Luxemburg).

We do virtually no lobbying and the visible part of the network is used as it is used. And so it comes to hair-raising statements like those of the parliamentary State Secretary G√ľnter Krings of the CDU: "I understand why the Darknet can have a benefit in autocratic systems. But in my opinion there are no legitimate benefits in a free, open democracy. Those who use the darknet are usually up to no good. This simple insight should also be reflected in our legal order."

Absolute disgust of absolute ignorance, this is the only just response to what they have said. What ignorant, fearful mongering jackals! Do they not realize that a free and open Darknet is one of the reasons they don't have an "autocratic system"? It is the load-bearing pillar of a free society in our current epoch. Remove it and you open up the possibility for free society itself to collapse. A free society has to allow for extralegal natural liberty to exist in order to genuinely protect civil liberty, in spite of the well known and universally hated abuses of that freedom. While the two do contradict one another in some ways, you have to be able to go AROUND the legal system when one's own individual conscience, mightier than all the written laws in the world, bounds it to do so in the overall interests of a free society.

If the German intelligence agencies or military, we find out, is breaking the law, acting unethically, violating human rights, or acting contrary to the will of the people, and at the same time we are bound by oath or sworn to secrecy on pain of extreme punishment, what mechanism is there for us to report such happenings to the public without serious jeopardy to life and limb? Outside of the "darknet", we find in our present society that there are practically none. I cannot fathom a greater danger to the existence of free society, apart from turning the key to tyranny itself, than this appalling proposal to "ban the darknet".

People, be vigilant! Anonymity is the ultimate expression of freedom, the ultimate means to even speak of truly free speech, free thought, free opinion. What better prerequisite to freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of thought is there than privacy, than the right to be anonymous? Hackers of the world, Unite! The light of liberty is waning, we shall not see it dim without a fight! Till the restless scourge of power unjust is upon us, and even then we shall not go quietly into the night!

More details on the bootstrap process:

In the descriptor file(s) one or more routers will be designated as reseed servers. They will be started before all other routers (through the jail's cron) and will know only about themselves. Then various subsets of routers from the testnet will be started via their cron jobs and be pointed to the reseed servers. This allows for experimenting with various bootstrap scenarios and allows us to study how RouterInfo's propagate through the network.

Digging deeper into the requirements above:

2. Exhaustive - the descriptor file for a testnet must list all nodes, links between them, which router build is deployed on which node, and any other property I may be forgetting

The properties I forgot are:
* lines to add to router.config
* lines to add to logger.config
* crontab for the jail

The crontab for the jail will be used to start/stop the router (and optionally do other things like copy .torrent files to the snark directory for testing.
