Christian Grothoff: The GNU Name System and the Future of Social Networking with GNUnet
The Domain Name System (DNS) is vital for access to information on the Web. It is thus a target for attackers trying to suppress free access to information. This talk will introduce the design and implementation of the GNU Name System (GNS), a decentralized and censorship-resistant name system. It will then describe how we plan to use GNS as a public key infrastructure for secure social networking.
