Just read about this protocol a few days ago:


Has anyone had the pleasure to play with it yet?

Seems like it might be a necessity to support truely decentral,
distributed, dynamic internet uplinks in a public mesh network?

(otherwise, everytime a node with a direct uplink vanishes, TCP
connections would break or would need some tunneling)

The idea of HIP to strip the identity part from IP addresses and
replacing it with a layer in between, which cryptographically
generates identities, sounds ingenious!
