That's bizarre. Nobody can actually break 128 bit AES at the moment, as
far as we know - why have an upper limit that can't be broken anyway?

It depends on how paranoid you are. While it is possible that somebody
is a mole, infiltrating networks like that is ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE more
expensive than just harvesting the opennet. Infiltrating social networks
via actual social connections is seriously expensive.

He will be connected to John. If Jill wants to connect to him too, then
she must connect to him and him to her.

Sure, he can run two separate nodes. He can then manually migrate
content, if he wants to.

Two separate nodes, otherwise the darknet's apparently working won't
show very much.

While it might theoretically be possible, I would strongly object to it.
You can MANUALLY migrate good content, but a gateway node would
undermine the whole idea of the darknet. You end up with a few nodes on
the edge of the opennet, connected to another few nodes on another edge
via the opennet. When the opennet is taken away, as it inevitably will
be, they are isolated again.

Some of us think about it but I see 2 problems to that :
- We don't know each others and can't trust one not to be part of DST
(our MI-5) or SNEP (our RIAA). So we can't reasonably reveal our real
identities.

OK for the pizza as long as it has cheese on it ;-)

Thanks for the heads up
I ended up trashing that ancient version of freenet, and went for the 
latest release instead.
I've started it up, and already things seem to be closer to a desired 
outcome, so I'll be patient.
Also, I received this message, as seen below this line. Should I be 
concerned about it?
$ os.arch = ppc

jbigi library name for os type 'Mac OS X'' - using pure java

Anyway, I seem to be getting somewhere, ie, 'caveat lector'

I know that you probably hate people asking the same questions over and over 
again, i have 
been reading these discussions and explanations for quite some time, but can't 
find an 
answers to the questions that interests me.

Let's say I trust John and Jill. I create my own litte darknet to distribute 
highly 
contravercial vegan recepies, which happen to be illegal in my hypothetical 
meat-eaters-only country. Then John, decides to invite Jason into the 
darknet... and Jason 
is an undercover meat-eater. Will Jason be able to learn about my vegan 
habbits? If not 
(i.e. he will only be connected to John) then John will be the only point of 
entry for 
anything Jason wants to insert/retrieve from the darknet, is that correct?

You have also mentioned about joining two different darknets together. Do you 
mean that if 
Jason in our situation is a member of a vegetarian (rather than vegan) darknet 
then 
vegetarian darknetters will be able to receive the content of vegan darnet? Can 
that be 
stopped? (ie Can Jason say, "Yes, i'm a part of two darknets, but i don't want 
any 
crosspolination between the two").

How easy is it to run opennet and darknet at the same time? Will that require 
two separate 
nodes running or can i run one nodes connecting to both nets?

How easy would it be to set up a gateway between a darknet and an opennet?

Well i think this is about all.

Yes, new tools will be required. And yes, we will try to ensure they are
available close to release of the new network - we don't want half the
world's media reporting that freenet 0.7 is fast but has no content

[freenet-support] The new version and UDP

2005-09-19 Thread Matthew Toseland
Well... yeah. :| You can keep using 0.5. And there will be a TCP
transport plugin, eventually, but probably not before 0.7.0.

However in your case I rather suspect freenet 0.7.0 would just work,
even with UDP. UDP port forwarding should not normally be necessary. If
you know the IP of the other end, and it knows yours, you can connect,
unless your router is *really* whacky.

No. The hard problem is providing something vaguely resembling the
internet in scale and functionality that:
a) Prevents the powerful from tracing a given information source -
author, informant, whistleblower, artist, etc. AND
b) Will still be usable even if running a freenet node is itself 
illegal, and will make it expensive to destroy the network.

The opennet is for those who don't have any friends but trust the
government. The darknet is for those who trust their friends but not the
government. Take your pick, you can't have both. The opennet is
harvestable, and always will be harvestable. Only the darknet has a
chance in a hostile environment where running a node may in itself be
dangerous.

This is impossible unless the node knows which files belong to which
splitfile. Which would be very bad. Well I suppose we could do some
red/black colouring or something, but it would suck, and wouldn't work
on a darknet. In any case, the real problem here is that the whole file
might be in your store because you requested it (the Register attack).
There are several possible solutions to this. The obvious darknet
solution is just to not cache the files you request (unless somebody
else asks for them). The problem is this might be detected by your
immediate neighbours; unless we take fairly extreme measures, it is
likely that your immediate friends can detect what you are browsing if
they actively attack you with e.g. correlation attacks. All solutions to
this so far appear rather difficult and expensive (slow), so we are just
ignoring the problem for 0.7.0.

[freenet-support] rfi: FCP API for 0.7

2005-09-19 Thread Matthew Toseland
No. 0.7 is a major change. The fundamentals will be similar but there
are some significant changes:
- We no longer create one connection for every request. We multiplex.
  This is what the identifiers are for.
- Requests do not necessarily start immediately. They can be queued by
  the node. If the client asks for a status update it can get one; if
  the client kills the connection and tries again (which is very common
  in 0.5 clients), it will probably be coalesced with the old request.
- Splitfiles are handled more or less transparently by the node. You
  can have as much status information as you want, or as little, but you
  do not have to (and cannot easily) parse the metadata and do the
  splitfile decode yourself. The metadata itself is binary in any case,
  and may be hierarchical (i.e. a splitfile manifest might not fit in
  one 32kB block), and anything over 32kB will need to be split (or at
  least gzipped transparently).

A question I've not seen addressed with other than 'soon', approximately when
do you expect 0.7 to be released for public use?

Hmm, odd. The most likely cause is a corrupt freenet.jar, try comparing the
sizes / re-downloading it. Or you are trying to use 0.7's alpha jar which IIRC
has a different main class, but this would be hard to do by accident since they
aren't even hosted on freenetproject.org :)

Failing that, what does the end of freenet.log say when this happens?

Re: [freenet-support] rfi: FCP API for 0.7

2005-09-19 Thread Matthew Toseland
No. 0.7 is a major change. The fundamentals will be similar but there
are some significant changes:
- We no longer create one connection for every request. We multiplex.
  This is what the identifiers are for.
- Requests do not necessarily start immediately. They can be queued by
  the node. If the client asks for a status update it can get one; if
  the client kills the connection and tries again (which is very common
  in 0.5 clients), it will probably be coalesced with the old request.
- Splitfiles are handled more or less transparently by the node. You
  can have as much status information as you want, or as little, but you
  do not have to (and cannot easily) parse the metadata and do the
  splitfile decode yourself. The metadata itself is binary in any case,
  and may be hierarchical (i.e. a splitfile manifest might not fit in
  one 32kB block), and anything over 32kB will need to be split (or at
  least gzipped transparently).

   It would be nice indeed and a positive sign if something was said about
   what to expect on the API. It will not be something esoteric, it will be
   like what it is now as seen from a functional level, I guess.
   
   Maybe the messages being exchanged will have a different format but that
   will not cause much trouble. Just make sure the FCP parts are properly
   isolated and the distance will be relatively short, I hope.

  Not necessarily.
 
 So the friend small-world thing is purely for the scalable darknet, and the

No, it will use the same routing, but will probably have some level of

On Sat, Sep 17, 2005 at 10:28:49PM -0400, John Meeks wrote:
 It seems to me that finding people to communicate with (trust) is the hard
 part, and actually communicating with them is the easy part.  The opennet
 allows you to not have to trust people, since everything is anonymous, and
 thus solves the hard problem (in addition to the easy one).  The friends
 network solves the easy problem (communication) but doesn't help with the
 hard problem (finding people to trust).

No. The hard problem is providing something vaguely resembling the
internet in scale and functionality that:
a) Prevents the powerful from tracing a given information source -
author, informant, whistleblower, artist, etc. AND
b) Will still be usable even if running a freenet node is itself 
illegal, and will make it expensive to destroy the network.

The opennet is for those who don't have any friends but trust the
government. The darknet is for those who trust their friends but not the
government. Take your pick, you can't have both. The opennet is
harvestable, and always will be harvestable. Only the darknet has a
chance in a hostile environment where running a node may in itself be
dangerous.
 
 There is one change that I think would be good:  Make it impossible to
 construct any given file from any given node.  This turns deniability into
 impossibility (ie. someone can't say the file was on the drive, and it
 was encrypted they can only say part of the file was on the drive, but
 we had to get the rest off the internet to get the file).  This seems to
 have a better chance of standing up in court.  In other words, never let a
 given node hold any complete file.

This is impossible unless the node knows which files belong to which
splitfile. Which would be very bad. Well I suppose we could do some
red/black colouring or something, but it would suck, and wouldn't work
on a darknet. In any case, the real problem here is that the whole file
might be in your store because you requested it (the Register attack).
There are several possible solutions to this. The obvious darknet
solution is just to not cache the files you request (unless somebody
else asks for them). The problem is this might be detected by your
immediate neighbours; unless we take fairly extreme measures, it is
likely that your immediate friends can detect what you are browsing if
they actively attack you with e.g. correlation attacks. All solutions to
this so far appear rather difficult and expensive (slow), so we are just
ignoring the problem for 0.7.0.

Re: [freenet-support] The new version and UDP

2005-09-19 Thread Matthew Toseland
Well... yeah. :| You can keep using 0.5. And there will be a TCP
transport plugin, eventually, but probably not before 0.7.0.

However in your case I rather suspect freenet 0.7.0 would just work,
even with UDP. UDP port forwarding should not normally be necessary. If
you know the IP of the other end, and it knows yours, you can connect,
unless your router is *really* whacky.

 I know it probably sounds silly, but for some time I've been using a

 What happens to those unlucky users who can't use UDP? Should we just
 stop using Freenet until we get a better router / portforwarding
 support?

 I did. So you confirm my understanding ? 99% of current Freenet users
 won't be able to join the darknet and will have to use opennet.

In the short term, perhaps. In the West you won't need to have known
somebody for 25 years in order to trust them enough to connect to their
node; I would be happy to connect to a number of people I have never
met, who I know online. There are a few parameters here:
1. Are they an acquaintance, beyond random computer selection? We must
not connect people randomly, because routing requires a small world
graph.
2. Do you trust them enough for them to know for sure that you run a
freenet node? It may be illegal in some places, in which case you will
need to pick more carefully.
3. Do you trust them not to launch attacks on you in order to break your
anonymity? How difficult such attacks are depends on the design
decisions we make in 0.7.0, and hopefully in future they will be more
difficult, but you will always be most vulnerable to your immediate
neighbours (just as you are most vulnerable to your real life friends in
real life).
 
 Suppose Freenet 0.7 becomes illegal in France (what it already is,
 because of the AES 256 encryption).

My understanding is that the french crypto regulations were abandoned
some time ago.

 The opennet won't be secure for us,
 but we won't be able to join the darknet. What could we do ? Keep on
 using 0.5 ?

Make your own darknet. :)
Then come to Bristol, take me out for a pizza, and I'll connect to your
node ;). Seriously, there needs to be some sort of relationship for the
small world properties to hold, but beyond that it's not such a big
deal.
 
 The opennet will probably be more secure than 0.5. But both are very
 easy to shut down, because they can be very easily harvested - all nodes
 can be found easily, meaning they can be blocked, attacked, etc.
 
 That is why I'm searching a way for someone who is neither a member of
 alpha-testers/Freenet-devs, nor a very organised terrorist/paedophile to
 join the darknet.

Surprisingly enough most paedophiles are disorganized. Just like most
other people are disorganized.
 
 Do you think it would be possible for nodes in the darknet to see what
 happens in the opennet ?
 Maybe a special kind of nodes that acts as a gateway between the 2
 networks : it wouldn't endanger the anonymity of thoses who are in the
 darknet but it would give them the ability to see the newcommers and
 eventually decide to invite them.

*Any* node on the opennet is vulnerable to being found, blocked, seized
etc. However there is no reason that content cannot be migrated from one
to the other.
 
 My opinion is that a resistance-network has to be closed tight when war
 is on. But it needs to create itself before that. So if some people
 could choose the become some fuses between open and dark, the darknet
 would remain safe and be able to recruit.

It is IMHO strategically vital that we can test the network as a pure
darknet. We will need an opennet as well, because we need to have
something for people to download from freenetproject.org.
 
 I'm affraid that if this fonctionnality isn't enabled in Freenet, people
 will do it by other ways (internet forums, mailing-lists, weak encrypted
 emails, etc.) which are way less secure than Freenet. Or worse, some
 will decide to publish their keys and allow anyone to connect to the
 darknet through them...

In which case there will be weak segments of the darknet. That does not
undermine the whole structure. The mainstreamers can still use the
opennet. I expect there to be some cross-recruiting. But the intention
is for the darknet to be separate from the opennet. People who happen to
be on both can migrate content manually. They can also get to know
people on the opennet, and perhaps add them later. I first met Ian after
having worked for him for around a year; I have a friend in Australia who
I've never met but I would be perfectly happy to connect my node to. But
at this stage, I would happily connect to Newsbyte. Or CofE if I knew
him, but I obviously wouldn't want him to breach his carefully guarded
anonymity just for that. :)

[freenet-support] Connection Issue

2005-09-19 Thread Jake Speed
I had been using Freenet for about a week without an
issue. After having to restart, Freenet would just
keep trying to connect forever without success.

I have tried re-installing to no avail.

I have double checked my Firewall settings with the
Port in the Freenet.ini file.

I can't see any reason it should have stopped being
able to connect.

[freenet-support] Proposed new freenet - questions from a Freesite author

2005-09-19 Thread dukemorbid1
I viewed Ian's DEFCON presentation and though not a technical 
expert found it fascinating. Some questions arise that might 
concern other non-technical users of Freenet too.

1. I don't know (i.e. can't identify) any other Freenet users. How 
will I be able to find a set of peers?

2. Does needing to have one's node always on literally require 24 
hour connection? I can manage a few hours (broadband) most days at 
best.

3. Will the identifiers of existing Freesites have to change?

4. Will new tools for site insertion be required and if so will 
they be made available at the same time as the new Freenet comes 
into general use? People like me prefer interfaces such as Freesite 
Insertion Wizard to command line driven tools.

Thanks to the team for their splendid work.

That law is just a project (no decree yet). For the moment, we're still

Make your own darknet. :)
Then come to Bristol, take me out for a pizza, and I'll connect to your
node ;). Seriously, there needs to be some sort of relationship for the
small world properties to hold, but beyond that it's not such a big
deal.
  


Some of us think about it but I see 2 problems to that :
- We don't know each others and can't trust one not to be part of DST
(our MI-5) or SNEP (our RIAA). So we can't reasonably reveal our real
identities.
- If we do that, newcommers will be completely alone and we won't be
able to guide them or invite them into the darknet.

OK for the pizza as long as it has cheese on it ;-)

I'm affraid that if this fonctionnality isn't enabled in Freenet, people
will do it by other ways (internet forums, mailing-lists, weak encrypted
emails, etc.) which are way less secure than Freenet. Or worse, some
will decide to publish their keys and allow anyone to connect to the
darknet through them...



In which case there will be weak segments of the darknet. That does not
undermine the whole structure. The mainstreamers can still use the
opennet. I expect there to be some cross-recruiting. But the intention
is for the darknet to be separate from the opennet. People who happen to
be on both can migrate content manually. They can also get to know
people on the opennet, and perhaps add them later. I first met Ian after
having worked for him for around a year; I have a friend in Australia who
I've never met but I would be perfectly happy to connect my node to. But
at this stage, I would happily connect to Newsbyte. Or CofE if I knew
him, but I obviously wouldn't want him to breach his carefully guarded
anonymity just for that. :)


Mmm, well. Let's wait and see how that will work. Middle 2006, it'll be
clearer...

Thanks for your answers.

[freenet-support] Zero Point Seven

2005-09-19 Thread Volodya Mozhenkov
I know that you probably hate people asking the same questions over and over again, i have 
been reading these discussions and explanations for quite some time, but can't find an 
answers to the questions that interests me.


Let's say I trust John and Jill. I create my own litte darknet to distribute highly 
contravercial vegan recepies, which happen to be illegal in my hypothetical 
meat-eaters-only country. Then John, decides to invite Jason into the darknet... and Jason 
is an undercover meat-eater. Will Jason be able to learn about my vegan habbits? If not 
(i.e. he will only be connected to John) then John will be the only point of entry for 
anything Jason wants to insert/retrieve from the darknet, is that correct?


You have also mentioned about joining two different darknets together. Do you mean that if 
Jason in our situation is a member of a vegetarian (rather than vegan) darknet then 
vegetarian darknetters will be able to receive the content of vegan darnet? Can that be 
stopped? (ie Can Jason say, Yes, i'm a part of two darknets, but i don't want any 
crosspolination between the two).


How easy is it to run opennet and darknet at the same time? Will that require two separate 
nodes running or can i run one nodes connecting to both nets?


How easy would it be to set up a gateway between a darknet and an opennet?

Well i think this is about all.

He will be connected to John. If Jill wants to connect to him too, then
she must connect to him and him to her.

Sure, he can run two separate nodes. He can then manually migrate
content, if he wants to.
 
 How easy is it to run opennet and darknet at the same time? Will that 
 require two separate nodes running or can i run one nodes connecting to 
 both nets?

Two separate nodes, otherwise the darknet's apparently working won't
show very much.
 
 How easy would it be to set up a gateway between a darknet and an opennet?

While it might theoretically be possible, I would strongly object to it.
You can MANUALLY migrate good content, but a gateway node would
undermine the whole idea of the darknet. You end up with a few nodes on
the edge of the opennet, connected to another few nodes on another edge
via the opennet. When the opennet is taken away, as it inevitably will
be, they are isolated again.
 
 Well i think this is about all.

That's bizarre. Nobody can actually break 128 bit AES at the moment, as
far as we know - why have an upper limit that can't be broken anyway?

It depends on how paranoid you are. While it is possible that somebody
is a mole, infiltrating networks like that is ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE more
expensive than just harvesting the opennet. Infiltrating social networks
via actual social connections is seriously expensive.

Ouch.  This is an ancient build.  You got that from Sourceforge didn't
you?  Those are really old files (Someone really ought to update them)
 No wonder you can't connect.  Here's what you do:

Stop your node. 

If you are run windows, click StartProgramsFreenetUpdate Snapshot
If you are running *nix,  run update.sh

Download seednodes.zip from   http://freenetproject.org/snapshots and
unzip the file.  Put the seednodes.ref (from the seednodes.zip file)
inside your freenet folder (overwriting your old file)

Start your node and go to the open connections page.  Refresh this
for a few minutes until you see some connections active.  Hopefully
this should get you going.

2005-09-19 Thread Juiceman
Thanks for the heads up

I ended up trashing that ancient version of freenet, and went for the
latest release instead.

I've started it up, and already things seem to be closer to a desired
outcome, so I'll be patient.

Also, I received this message, as seen below this line. Should I be
concerned about it?

$ os.arch = ppc

INFO: Native BigInteger library jbigi not loaded, reason: 'Dont know
jbigi library name for os type 'Mac OS X'' - using pure java


Anyway, I seem to be getting somewhere, ie, 'caveat lector'


Regards.

Bruce

That just means you don't have the optional native math libraries
installed.  Freenet will work fine without them.  I don't think it is
very easy to get those installed either so I wouldn't bother.

Happy freenetting!

P.S.  The current node build is 5105, make sure you are running that.
