|Full description=GNUnet is a secure, trust-based peer-to-peer framework. A first service implemented on top of the networking layer allows anonymous censorship-resistant file-sharing. The goal of the GNUnet project is to become the ultimate system for free information exchange in a world hostile toward uncontrolled communication. We value free speech above state secrets, law-enforcement or intellectual property. GNUnet is supposed to be an anarchistic network, where the only limitation for peers is that they must contribute enough back to the network such that their resource consumption does not have a significant impact on other users. GNUnet's primary design goals are to protect the privacy of its users and to guard itself against attacks or abuse. GNUnet does not have any mechanisms to control, track or censor users. Instead, the GNUnet protocols aim to make it as hard as possible to find out what is happening on the network or to disrupt operations.

GNUnet

https://gnunet.org/
Anonymous peer-to-peer file-sharing

GNUnet is a framework for secure peer-to-peer networking that does not use any centralized or otherwise trusted services. Its high-level goal is to provide a strong free software foundation for a global network that provides security and privacy.

GNUnet started with an idea for anonymous censorship-resistant file-sharing, but has grown to incorporate other applications as well as many generic building blocks for secure networking applications. In particular, GNUnet now includes the GNU Name System, a privacy-preserving, decentralized public key infrastructure.
