Banner must be removed from website NOW

Who put a hidous large green banner on the website linking to
https://noglobalwarrants.org/?
Freenet's website is not a billboard for volunteers to express their personal
political views (not to mention the fact that it is visually hideous).
Even more seriously, it may put us in violation of US law because we are a 501c3
non-profit, which are restricted in the political and lobbying activities they
can participate in while claiming 501c3 status.
Can someone remove this immediately?
Ian.

Freenet 0.7.5 build 1475 released

2016-06-25

Freenet 0.7.5 build 1475 is now available. It materializes several
months of work (the previous release was rushed to fix frostbite) and
features some major changes. Your nodes should start auto-updating
soon. This build will become mandatory on July 15th.

The following bugs have been fixed/implemented:
- 0006745: Disk crypto: Should type password twice when setting it
- 0006344: Change default compatibility mode to COMPAT_1466
- 0006488: using “visit freesite” to visit a freesite with a hash (#)
fails instead of opening it and jumping to the anchor.

Summary of changes:
- fix a critical bug: prevent announcement loops
- drop support for negtype9 (non-cummulative ack logic)
- start to warn user that java7 is EOL
- PluginInfoMessage: Fix wrong "does not provide FCP" info about
plugins
- Stop warning users that java9 isn't recent enough
- Don't use FOAF if the HTL isn't high enough
- Attempt to update update.sh
- l10n improvements
- cooldown improvements
- load-limiting changes (token buckets)
- MessageFilter improvements
- relax the CSS parser (see https://github.com/freenet/fred/pull/446)
- support for HTML Audio tags
- ask/confirm the disk-crypto password in the wizard
- make the paste-a-key control usable on the WelcomeToadlet

Onioncat: Freenet over Onion Routing

I posted the idea on the Tor ML and no one objected. I asked a Tor
developer and he's okay with it, provided a few nodes run Tor relays.
Freenet seednodes are good candidates. Would the seednode admins be up for
helping out another anonymous network?

My estimates on bandwidth were around a hundred Onioncat nodes running a
minimum of 10KiB/s. That's as accurate as I can do without working network
metrics.

Request: scripts for fetch-pull (retrievability) stats

There used to be a daily updated fetch-pull stats freesite [0], but digger3
appears to have stopped maintaining it quite some time ago.

Having statistics on the retrievability of data is essential in gauging the
network's routing performance. I'd like to reinstate a freesite with such
(or similar) data, but I'd rather not start from scratch.

I have so far only been able find the code to compile and publish the
statistics [1], but not the code to actually measure the retrievability and
produce the raw data required for the statistics.

Is there a place where the code to measuring the fetch-pull performance is
published, or does anyone have a copy?

Thanks.

Garlicat: Freenet over Garlic Routing


I2P Seednodes

Step 0. Install Onioncat and I2P. Run as service. Same binary has both
Onioncat and Garlicat.

Step 1. Create Tunnel

http://127.0.0.1:7657/i2ptunnelmgr

-> Tunnel Wizard -> Server Tunnel -> Type: Standard -> name + description:
Garlicat -> Host: 127.0.0.1 Port:8061 -> autostart -> save tunnel

Step 2. Start tunnel

Step 3. Copy your b32 destination string, and truncate it.

    Example: If it is
mbtzuz7xirr6w5ai4irks7fopjyc5urkghk5ugl7mu37mplxuznq.b32.i2p then your
truncated string is mbtzuz7xirr6w5ai.oc.b32.i2p. (just take the first
16 characters and add .oc.b32.i2p to it.)

Step 4. Run gcat in server mode

sudo gcat mbtzuz7xirr6w5ai.oc.b32.i2p -U

Look-up your IPv6 address which you add to seednodes.fref:

gcat -i mbtzuz7xirr6w5ai.oc.b32.i2p

Onioncat: Freenet over Onion Routing


To give some background, I had an interesting discussion on ways of
reaching Freenet from other networks. Onioncat creates a p2p VPN overlay
for tunnelling TCP, UDP, ICMP or any other protocol over Tor and I2P.
Freenet can communicate over it. This works for Darknet mode and hopefully
Opennet once some seednodes get going. I'll focus on Tor because of better
performance. IRC is not a good medium for sharing steps so I'll do it
here.

HOW?

Instructions for Tor seednodes

Step 0. Install Tor

Step 1. Create a hidden service

    Open /etc/tor/torrc and modify:

HiddenServiceDir /etc/tor/ocat/
HiddenServicePort 8060 127.0.0.1:8060

Step 2. Find the hostname of your hidden service

run or restart tor.
cat /etc/tor/ocat/hostname
For example: c4cryzqdjns2i3je.onion

Step 3. Install Onioncat

Estimated 350 users run <=1473 ; new Gentoo Overlay

Hi,

I still have a non-updated Gentoo node on 1472, and I still get 10
connections which aren’t too new. 7 of these must be short-distance (as
by the link length fix), so there are likely around 7*50 = 350 nodes
stuck on a version < 1474.

To contribute to a fix: If you also run Gentoo and you want to update
1474, you can now just use layman:

$ emerge layman
$ layman -o https://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/freenet-gentoo-overlay/raw/tip/repositories.xml -f -a freenet
$ emerge -a ">=net-p2p/freenet-0.7.5_p1474"

For obvious reasons I now won’t be able to keep watching the progression
of updates :)

Best wishes,
Arne

HotPETs talk on Freenet overlay services

Hello,

We got word that our talk proposal "Eclipse and Re-Emergence of
Anonymous P2P Storage Network Overlay Services" [0] was accepted at
HotPETs [1].

The motivation is to illustrate the capabilities of Freenet overlay
services (aka plugins) and showcase what has been built so far. We
suggest that in some cases, eg for whistleblowing and blogging
platforms, they offer better security guarantees compared to the
extensively used Tor onion services.

Comments are welcome!
Best,
Marios
