I2P (deutsch) / I2P 0.8.12 veröffentlicht
« on: January 07, 2012, 10:41:54 AM »
Moin

Sorry, nur auf englisch, aber generell: wichtige Bugfixes zum UDP transport die die Stabilität des Netzes erhöhen sollten.Und generell Ergänzungen zu den Updates und weitere Bugfixes und ein paar neue Icons.

The 0.8.12 release fixes several message corruption bugs, some present since 2005. It also contains a redesign of the router's congestion control, and continued optimization of CPU and memory usage. We are hopeful that these changes will improve network performance. Upgrading is recommended.
 
Files are available on the download page.

Release Details

This release contains several big changes that should help network reliability and performance.

The first two changes are fixes for major UDP packet transmission bugs, described below. The third change is fixes to the decompressor. Fixing these should eliminate a big source of message delivery failures.

Also, the release contains a rewrite of the router's participating traffic congestion control. It should now more accurately measure current participating bandwidth, handle bursts better, drop messages less, and drop the right messages if dropping is required.

Also, the release reduces the amount of processing that routers do for messages they pass down the tunnel. These messages do not need to be completely parsed and validated since the gateway is simply passing them through. This will help performance of all routers but the improvement will probably not be noticeable except on high-traffic routers.

We're optimistic that these changes will help, and of course eliminating sources of message corruption is sure to help. However the extend of the improvement won't be apparent until the majority of the network upgrades.

The release also contains some updates to the router console light theme. You may need to do a shift-reload or control-reload in your browser to force a reload of the CSS.

Major changes

- Instead of fully parsing and validating messages received at the inbound gateway, simply pass them down the tunnel
 - Don't verify I2NP checksums in most cases, as message corruption is caught at other layers
 - Don't recalculate I2NP checksums on messages passed through unchanged
- Several NTCP pumper optimizations, to hopefully fix NTCP pumper high CPU usage on fast routers
 - Rewrite participating tunnel congestion control, to drop less, more accurately measure traffic, and handle bursts better

Wrapper Update

New installs include wrapper version 3.5.13 which fixes a heap corruption with very long log lines. See http://wrapper.tanukisoftware.com/doc/english/release-notes.html for additional information. I2P PPA package users should have received this update in the last week of December. If you do not use our PPA package and would like to update your wrapper manually, follow the instructions at http://www.i2p2.de/manualwrapper .

Bug Fixes

- Fix major SSU MTU bug introduced in 0.8.9.The router sometimes sent UDP packets that exceeded the maximum size that routers would accept on the receive side. This resulted in a lot of dropped packets, tunnel build problems, and connection problems. One thing that contributed to us missing the problem was that 0.8.9 was released in the middle of the huge network expansion in early October, when network performance was already deteriorating rapidly.
 - Fix major SSU fragmentation bug present since 2005. UDP corrupted transmit messages when the message size was an exact multiple of the fragmentation size.
 - Fix major decompression bugs present since 2005 that caused message corruption and data loss at multiple protocol layers.
 - Snark doesn't always delete directories
- Fix all character case conversion (Turkish four i problem)
- Whitelist more IRC commands
- Remove expired reseed cert

Other

- Speed up the inefficient GeoIP lookup
- Optimize several heavily-used utility functions
- Don't drop the transport connection when receiving an invalid message, it isn't necessary and could be an attack vector
 - Console light theme update
- Move the complex network configuration stuff to a new console page
- Add a link to hide the news in the console
- Allow numerous additional IRC commands through the IRC filter
- Several other cleanups, optimizations, and object caches added
- New Estonian translation (thanks ajutine)
- Spanish, Swedish, Ukrainian translation updates

I2P (deutsch) / I2P 0.8.9 released
« on: October 14, 2011, 10:43:05 AM »
The 0.8.9 release has several performance improvements, and many changes to handle the continued rapid growth of the network. It uses a new iterative method for Kademlia network database lookups that should be more reliable and efficient. There are also several improvements to our SSU (UDP) transport protocol that should help reliability and efficiency. We have made several changes to improve tunnel build success rates. And, of course, there are lots of bug fixes and translation updates.
 The network has grown quite rapidly in recent weeks, and that's great news, but it has caused some instability. We welcome all our new users and we ask you to be patient as we make improvements to the software.
 Please help grow the network. Get involved, spread the word, and donate! If you find a bug, please enter a report on trac. We are still looking for help on new and existing translations. Please volunteer on IRC #i2p-dev.
Files are available on the download page.
Release Details
* Iterative netdb lookup, this had to be fixed as the network growth was making the old method less reliable. Also increase lookup timeouts to improve success rates.
* Implement a SSU disconnect message so that the other side of a connection finds out when the peer disconnects. This should considerably speed up subsequent reconnection.
* Major rewrite of the SSU send queue code, for efficiency in high-speed routers
* Major rewrite of the participating tunnels expiration code, for efficiency in high=speed routers
* Increase the maximum SSU MTU so messages take less packets
* New reverse lookup table in the hosts.txt database so that names are displayed again on the neteb leases page.
* Preliminary support for IRC DCC - not enabled by default
* (New installs only) Switch to the Maxmind GeoIP database which is up-to-date and has better coverage of some countries.
* (New installs only) Update to wrapper 3.5.12 to fix file permission problems.
Bug Fixes
* Fix restoration of original tunnel quantity after idle
* Reduce CPU usage when network is disconnected
* Fix i2psnark "eject" button in certain browsers
* Fix changing i2psnark tunnel parameters
* Fix installation issues on some non-English Windows versions
* Catch some uncaught exceptions from GNU NIO
* Fix connectivity issues after long suspend times
Other
* Improvements to the data structure caching, and increase some cache sizes, to increase hit rates. Add a country code string cache.
* Continue work on removing global locks for performance improvements
* Rewrite of the job queue for efficiency
* Switch to https reseed by default for security; update the reseed host lists
* Don't bother to gzip small http responses and images
* Use bigger buffers and gunzipper cache in the http proxy
* Several changes to improve tunnel build success rates
* Increase the number of floodfills again
* Faster router info expiration
* Remove ancient deprecated ministreaming socket manager
* Add option for i2psnark files readable by everyone
* Add option for i2psnark page refresh time
* Add streaming API for getting and setting I2CP port
* More aggressive netdb exploration by hidden routers
* Remove confusing "firewalled and fast" message
* Translation updates for German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and Swedish

I2P / I2P 0.8.8 released
« on: August 24, 2011, 07:57:21 AM »
I2P release 0.8.8 enables the new hosts.txt database to speed hostname lookups and store additional information on hostname entries. It also includes improvements to speed a router's integration on startup. There is new code to detect and react to large clock shifts that should help a router recover after suspend/resume of the computer.
 There are new translations for Danish and Ukranian and lots of updates in other languages. Also included are, of course, a large collection of bug fixes, performance improvements, and updates to deal with the continued rapid expansion of the network.
 Please help grow the network. Get involved, spread the word, and donate! If you find a bug, please enter a report on trac. We are still looking for help on new and existing translations. Please volunteer on IRC #i2p-dev.
Files are available on the download page.
Release Details
Major changes
* Enable new hosts.txt database for 10x faster lookups and ability to store additional information about entries. The database is created on upgrade, and populated with entries from the hosts.txt, privatehosts.txt, userhosts.txt files. Do not edit your *hosts.txt files manually after the upgrade; you must use the addressbook interface in the router console to add or delete entries.
* (New installs only) Wrapper and jbigi support for ARM v5 processors. The support added in 0.8.7 only worked for ARM v7 processors. We now support both.
* (New installs only) Wrapper and jbigi support for 64 bit x86 and PPC processors for OSX, and PPC for Linux. The support added in 0.8.7 only worked for 32-bit processors on OSX. We now support both.
Bug Fixes
* Fix some Null Pointer Exceptions in the console at startup
* Fix some problems with wrapper interaction at shutdown
* Fix several issues with "soft" restart, used when the network configuration changes, or when IP changes in "laptop mode"
* Fix problems with tunnel tests after the tunnel pool is shut down
* Rename the private key file for a tunnel after deleting the tunnel, so it isn't inadvertently reused when a new tunnel is created
* Fix several hosts database file bugs, and add improved corruption detection and recovery
* Fix cases where thread dump wouldn't work
* Speed up network integration for new routers and routers that had been stopped for a long time
* Fix a bug which would leave UPnP ports open after shutdown
* Fix UPnP errors when running on computers with multiple network interfaces
* Fix some of the character encoding issues in susimail (still has some problems)
* Change several log errors to warnings
Other
* Lots of improvements in the router shutdown code
* Improvements in recognizing and reacting to large clock shifts (generally caused by system suspend / resume). There are still issues remaining. Large clock shifts now cause a "soft" restart.
* Increase the number of floodfills again
* Increase the number of fast peers for those with several local destinations
* Increase the default news fetch time, which will extend the network upgrade period
* Add the router version to the update file zip signature to prevent version spoofing
* Support readonly hosts database files
* Remove floodfills from the exploration search message, which will help exploration work much better.
* Increase the netdb exploration speed when starting up, to help new routers integrate more quickly
* Speed up the enumeration of floodfill routers
* Several other performance improvements
* New Danish and Ukrainian translations
* Translation updates for Chinese, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish and Swedish

I2P / I2P 0.8.8 released
« on: August 24, 2011, 07:56:56 AM »
I2P release 0.8.8 enables the new hosts.txt database to speed hostname lookups and store additional information on hostname entries. It also includes improvements to speed a router's integration on startup. There is new code to detect and react to large clock shifts that should help a router recover after suspend/resume of the computer.
 There are new translations for Danish and Ukranian and lots of updates in other languages. Also included are, of course, a large collection of bug fixes, performance improvements, and updates to deal with the continued rapid expansion of the network.
 Please help grow the network. Get involved, spread the word, and donate! If you find a bug, please enter a report on trac. We are still looking for help on new and existing translations. Please volunteer on IRC #i2p-dev.
Files are available on the download page.
Release Details
Major changes
* Enable new hosts.txt database for 10x faster lookups and ability to store additional information about entries. The database is created on upgrade, and populated with entries from the hosts.txt, privatehosts.txt, userhosts.txt files. Do not edit your *hosts.txt files manually after the upgrade; you must use the addressbook interface in the router console to add or delete entries.
* (New installs only) Wrapper and jbigi support for ARM v5 processors. The support added in 0.8.7 only worked for ARM v7 processors. We now support both.

I2P (deutsch) / Warum Du I2P nutzen solltest
« on: March 27, 2010, 08:00:15 PM »
Es gibt viele unterschiedliche Programme zum Schutz deiner Privatsphäre.
Hier nun eine kurze Übersicht warum Du I2P nutzen solltest und warum nicht.

Was ist I2P?

I2P ist ein Programmpaket welches im normalen Internet ein eigenes Netz aufbaut
und Daten in Paketen durch dieses eigene Netz leitet.
Dazu benutzt es andere I2P Router um die Daten über 0-15 andere I2P Router bis
zum Zielrechner zu transportieren. Die Anzahl der teilnehmenden I2P Router
werden von den Start und Endpunkten dieser Kette selber gemeinsam bestimmt.
Die IP Adressen werden dabei nur bei der Router zu Router Verbindung genutzt,
Start und Endpunkte im Netz sind unabhängig von der IP (normales Internet) und
der Router ID (I2P Netz).
Der I2P Router ist public source und in java programmiert, enthält jedoch auch
Assembler Teile. Sourcecode, der Router und darauf aufbaunende Software kann
von jedem kostenlos geladen und verändert werden. Die offizielle Distribution
ist mit einem Public-Key Verfahren von den Hauptentwicklern signiert.
Jeder Codebeitrag in unserem Sourcecodearchiv ist ebenfalls über Public-Key
Verfahren signiert vom jeweiligem Autor.
Somit wird eine Vertrauenskette aufgebaut, die der Software vertraut, somit
wird nicht dem Netz vertraut, sondern nur noch deinem eigenen Router!

Warum I2P?
Weil DU es brauchst!
Staatliche Stellen und Privatfirmen wie z.B. Google sammeln alle deine Daten die
du denen (auch ohne dein Wissen) gegeben hast. Staatliche Stellen sammeln diese
und behalten diese so lange, bis Sie dich bei einer Gesetzesübertretung aufgrund
dieser Daten anklagen könnnen. Firmen kombinieren alle vorhandenen Daten um mehr
zu verkaufen und dir mehr Sinnvolles (oder sinnbefreites) Material anzudrehen.
Manche wollen dich mit den Daten sogar erpressen!
Eine andere Nutzungsform ist die der freien Meinungsäusserung. In einigen nicht
freien Staaten (z.B. China, Myanmar, Iran oder anderen) dürfen die Bürger nicht
frei reden oder gar ihre Meinung frei im Internet publizieren - sie werden
deswegen gejagt und ins Gefängnis verfrachtet.
Auch ist der sichere und anonyme Dateiaustausch eine der möglichen Nutzungsformen.

Was sind die Vorteile von I2P gegenüber anderen?
Neben der Tatsache eines funktionierenden und laufendem Netzes gibt es noch
weitere gute Gründe zum Nutzen von I2P und keines anderen Tools.
Es ist Open Source - jeder kann den Code nach Schwachstellen, Fehlern oder gar
Hintertüren kontrollieren.
Es steht eine starke Gemeinschaft hinter I2P - und es ist absolut kostenlos!
Es ist eine flexible Alles-In-Einem Software, ein breites Angebot an Anwendungen
sind schon im Gebrauch: Eepsites (I2P Webseiten), Torrents, Gnutella, iMule (I2P
eMule), I2Pirc, Messenger, I2PMail,....
Geringe Latenz, Hohe Bandbreite - im Vergleich zu anderen Mix-Netzwerken ist die
Latenz auf den Verbindungen geringer und die Bandbreite höher.
Du kannst den Grad deiner Anonymität für jede Anwendung selber bestimmen - von
nicht-anonym bis hin zu stark-anonym.
I2P ist P2P-freundlich, du hast keinen Grund, deine P2P Anwendung zu verstecken.
I2P verkraftet den Datenaustausch ohne Probleme und es gibt sogar viele speziell
darauf ausgerichtete Anwendungen.
I2P hat guten User Support, zu jeder Zeit sind mehr als 1500 verschieden I2P
Router aktiv im Netz mit über 6000 verschiedenen Router im Monat.
Es ist einfach zu installieren und braucht nur geringe Ressourcen.
Es verschlüsselt alle übertragenen Daten 3-fach. inklusiver End-Zu-End
Verschlüsselung durch das I2P Netzwerk vom Start zum Zielrouter.

Warum Du I2P nicht nutzen solltest
Wie jedes System hat auch I2P Nachteile, die du in Betracht ziehen solltest.
I2P braucht eine Java Virtual Machine - die von Sun funktioniert am besten.
I2P ist ein internes Netzwerk - normale Torrents/gnutella/IRC/eMule funktioniert
nicht.
I2P hat nur einen Outproxy - normale Webseiten besucht man am besten mit TOR.
I2P hat (noch) keine Caches - sämtliche Daten werden live von der Quelle zum
Ziel transportiert. Falls Du Daten verteilen willst und dabei nicht online sein
kannst ist das Freenet Projekt eine Idee wert.
I2P nutzt eine Menge an Bandbreite und Traffic wenn du es unbeobachtet laufen
lässt. Falls Du nach Traffic bezahlst, ändere die Limits beim ersten Start!
I2P  verbindet sich zu einer Menge anderer I2P Router, Du und dein Internet-
anbieter werden eine Menge UDP und TCP Verbindungen zu verschiedenen Ports sehen
- falls dein Provider zuviele Verbindungsversuche blockiert, ist die Bandbreite
deines I2P Routers limitiert.
I2P versteckt nicht, das Du I2P laufen lässt - falls du deine IP verstecken
willst solltest du den I2P Hidden Modus oder andere Software wie MUTE nutzen.
I2P ist (viel) langsamer als das normale Netz. Falls Du eine Bandbreite von
>20 kb/Sec auf einer Verbindung erwartest solltest du kein Anon-Tool benutzen.
Denn alle ernsthaften Anonymisierungstools haben Bandbreitenlimitierungen.

Warum nicht ein (bezahltes) VPN nutzen?
Die meisten VPN versuchen deine IP zu verstecken, dennoch benötigen sie Daten
um dich als Nutzer zu verwalten. Damit haben sie deine Kontaktdaten wie Name,
Adresse, Bankverbindung,...
Auch wenn sie auf deren Webseiten beteuern, das sie keine Daten speichern oder
herausgeben, müssen diese Dienste dem Gesetz folgen, dieses beinhaltet aber
auch: die IPs der Kunden zu speichern und diese IPs und die Adressen der Kunden
auf Anweisung der Polizei/des Gerichtes herauszugeben.
Du kannst den Versprechen auf den Webseiten vertrauen oder aber dein Vertrauen
in anderer Software, bei der das Speichern der IP nicht möglich ist, investieren,
es ist deine Entscheidung.
Aber WIR glauben in einen vertrauenswürdigen, kostenlosen Dienst der keine
Daten von dir speichert, die du nicht bekannt geben willst.

I2P (deutsch) / Verteiltes Datesystem Tahoe-LAFS unter I2P
« on: March 25, 2010, 08:47:15 AM »
Hallo!

Ein erste Alpha-Testversion von Tahoe-LAFS (http://allmydata.org/trac/tahoe-lafs) wurde auf http://duck.i2p (du brauchst I2P um auf diese Eepsite zuzugreifen) veröffentlicht.
Diese Version ist nur zum Testen gedacht und zeigt das prinzipielle Funktionieren von Tahoe-LAFS in I2P und die Funktionsweise eines verteilten Datencontainers im I2P Netz.
Da es noch eine sehr frühe Alpha Version ist, gibt es noch Probleme, Bugs, Schwachstellen bei den Privacy-Optionen (es ist noch nicht komplett anonym!) und weitere Probleme.
Diese werden im Laufe der Entwicklung dieser Software behoben werden.

Viel Spaß und Erfolg beim Testen.
