CryptNET: Peer Cache Daemon
This project uses The Strong Distribution Model for security.
CryptNET Peer Cache Daemon (CPCD) is a distrubted caching system for
dynamic p2p network peers. It is an implementation of the
protocol written by Hauke Dämpfling.
CryptNET PCD participates in the Gnutella web cache network.
Gnutella web caches are kept up to day by Gnutella servlets
which support the cache protocol.
When a cache supporting Gnutella servlet boots and finds that it is
unable to connect to another Gnutella node, it can contact a Gnutella
web cache and download a list of active Gnutella nodes currently
accepting connections and other active Gnutella web caches. Typically
20 cache urls and 50 Gnutella node addresses are served for each client.
PGP Key used to sign releases
- Provide a mechanism for p2p network peers to gain access to existing dynamic p2p networks.
- Improved Quality over data in existing caches with improved program logic and error checking
- Reduced server resource usage through use of C language and better program structure
Full installation instructions can be found in the
CryptNET Peer Cache Administrative Manual.
Due to the fact that you may encounter much more traffic than
you're expecting, it is highly advisable to set up cpcd on a
sub domain name of its own.
To announce your cache to the world, you may submit it at
the bottom of John Atkins's cache scan webpage.
Submitting your cache url there will also result in it being added to the cache scan report which
gives very good data about the status of your cache and the validitity of the data it is serving.
