Code

FlowingMail is composed by several sub-projects.

Some sub-projects are also released as individual open source projects.

Sub projects

 


EverywhereDHT

This is the distributed hash table used by FlowingMail. It derives from the Kademlia protocol.

The project doesn’t include the transport protocol, but supplies base classes that define the interface for the classes that will implement the transport.

Status: in progress and released (by Paolo)


Goingthere

This is the transport protocol for the DHT.

It includes nodes authentication & communication encryption between the nodes. This doesn’t include the mail encryption & transport, only the transmission of the DHT commands.

It includes the UPNP protocol to open external ports on home routers.
