However, it can’t do that without improving on user privacy. Hypercore has the solution. <p>The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), like many other peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing networks, has a privacy problem. IPFS clients constantly broadcast what they want to download and what is available for upload. Anyone that can observe your network traffic, like an internet service provider (ISP) or other snoops, can see what you’re sharing.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/dht-privacy-discovery-hash.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:822dfeea-a002-41f5-8269-4151c246f762 2020-12-30T00:39:00Z 2021-01-15T03:17:00Z Brave adds support for IPFS distributed P2P websites The Brave browser beta has added support for the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), a peer-to-peer protocol alternative to the traditional centralized web server. <p>The Brave browser recently added support for the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol in its beta release channel (desktop only). IPFS is a peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol that can be used in web browsers to visit websites that are hosted by the website’s visitors instead of a central web server. This is called the distributed web. For the last two decades, the open web has been on a steady course into the hands of a few behemoth multinational companies. The distributed web is a tool that can wrangle back control from the few and hand it back to the many.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/brave-ipfs.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:3c8ca800-291e-45bf-b8a3-e3fb456f131b 2020-01-19T19:33:00Z 2020-01-19T19:33:00Z Smarter reusable IPFS chunks from HTML documents IPFS splits files into chunks. Smarter splitting points in HTML files can create more reusable/deduplicatd chunks with higher availability. <p>The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a BitTorrent-like protocol for the peer-to-peer distributed web. IPFS splits large files into small chunks. IPFS clients can fetch chunks from anyone on the IPFS network that has that exact same chunk.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/ipfs-html-chunks.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:f3887365-1a8e-4956-8ecf-04a619949575 2019-02-13T14:47:00Z 2020-09-23T19:11:00Z The distributed web isn’t ready for Runet cutoff from the Internet Russia to test disconnecting from the global Internet. Peer-to-peer distributed internet alternatives won’t survive after the Runet cutoff. <p>Russia is preparing a nation-wide experiment where the whole country temporarily disconnects from the global Internet to see if the country can rely on Runet alone. The effort is supposed to help Russia prepare for potential digital warfare against the nation, but some analysts are also speculating whether this is the first step towards deploying a nation-spanning censorship machine like “the great firewall of China.”</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/dweb-readiness-runet.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:20975c12-4586-4670-9131-65c44c9ccd13 2019-02-13T01:06:00Z 2019-02-13T01:06:00Z Well-Known URI vs DNS-SD for distributed web service-discovery I compare the resilience of DNS Service-Discovery vs HTTPS Well-Known URIs when routing distributed internet traffic around censorship. <p>In this article, I want to discuss the use of Well-Known URIs and DNS based service discovery (DNS-SD) methods for mapping domain names to resources on the distributed web. I’ll focus on the different method’s ability to route around internet censorship and their centralization, and talk about some suggestions for improving the current implementations used by distributed web projects.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/wellknown-vs-dnssd-for-dweb.html">Read more …</a></p>
