Submission + - Anonymous network I2P 0.7.10 released (

Mathiasdm writes: The Invisible Internet Project (I2P) attempts to create an anonymous communication network. I2P creates an additional layer in the network stack, providing anonymity using encryption and passing messages along through several other computers. On top of the network, regular services such as mail, browsing, file sharing and chatting are supported.
Version 0.7.10 was released today. It will increase the scalability of the network, which has seen a 5-fold traffic growth in the past year, even further. The release also addresses a possible security issue.


Submission + - I2P 0.6.4: a strong anonymous network 1

An anonymous reader writes: The I2P (Invisible Internet Project) developers have put out a brand new version of the anonymous network software. I2P is very similar to Tor, but focuses more on internal traffic (allowing anonymous chat, browsing and of course P2P), while Tor is used mostly as a proxy.
For years, the developers kept a low profile, because of an alpha-state network. However, there have been lots of improvements in the past year, and the network is ready for medium-scale operations.
I2P is ready to grow, so go ahead and download the latest client!
