Meshnet Plan

49,085 subscribers a community for 8 years, 6 months

last post 1 day ago [+]

This subreddit is dedicated to organizing a decentralized alternative to traditional ISP's.

New to /r/DarknetPlan & Hyperboria?

Find your Meshlocal & check out the docs!

Other things to check out include:


Internet Relay Chat

Please do not post the following:

  • Funny pictures

  • Links to items for sale or to a promo page for a product or item. (Discussions of a product or item are fine)

  • Promotion of job openings

  • Unrelated projects (ie. tor) or topics (ie. piracy). This is for discussion of Hyperboria, not tor, not i2p, not where to get the latest blockbuster for free. /r/tor exists for a reason, as does /r/privacy, /r/torrents, etc. Check out this post for a nice list.

  • Suggestions to use ham, CB, terahertz, ELF, quantum, akashic field, or FRS radios for a mesh network. For more information, search the subreddit for past posts on these subjects.

Posts may be removed at the moderator's discretion. Removed posts will be in /r/Uncensorship

Please message the mods to have your meetup added here

Meshnet Related Subreddits:

/m/Meshlocals - Aggregates 70+ subreddits!




Terminology, just to clear up a few misconceptions:

  • Darknet: An anonymizing overlay network, usually running over the internet. Examples: Tor, i2p, freenet.

  • Meshnet: A decentralized peer-to-peer network, with user-controlled physical links. Usually wireless. Examples: Seattle Wireless,

  • Clearnet: The Internet at large, or any network which has no inherent cryptographic security, authenticity, or anonymity. Examples: internet, unencrypted meshnets.

  • The Meshnet: Used here, "the meshnet" refers the transitional CJDNS internet overlay network currently known as Hyperboria.

  • /r/darknetplan: A place to organize efforts to create a hardware/software stack for a globally scalable system of interconnected local meshnets. We realize that the inclusion of "darknet" in this name does not properly describe our current objectives, but the meshnet is a necessary foundation for the final goal of a truly resilient darknet.

Thanks to bepraaa for getting these definitions in order

This project has merged with /r/altheamesh

Hocnet is a concept for a competitively decentralized internet, solving the scaling problems of mesh networks through competitive interchangeable centralization that is not a threat to the decentralized nature of the network. Hocnet is designed so that everyone pays for what they use and anyone willing to provide a service to the network will make a profit.

A place to share pics & info on DIY PirateBoxes

3,016 subscribers a community for 6 years, 6 months

About PirateBox:

PirateBox is a self-contained mobile communication and file sharing device. Inspired by pirate radio and the free culture movement, PirateBox utilizes Free, Libre and Open Source software (FLOSS) to create mobile wireless file sharing networks where users can anonymously chat and share images, video, audio, documents, and other digital content.

The PirateBox can be built using a number of different configurations depending upon your needs and budget. The basic system consists of a lightweight web server connected to a wireless device. When users join the PirateBox wireless network and open a web browser, they are automatically redirected to the PirateBox welcome page. They can then begin uploading or downloading files.
