I am all packed and am about to move.
All my lokinet, i2p and onion related resources will be down until Early September 2020 while I find a new place to live. They should be back later.

Firefox recently introduced DNS over HTTPS in firefox for "securing" application dns. I am personally of the opinion that applications should NOT attempt to work around a broken system resolver as this is a system issue that is out of scope of the application. But I digress. While DoH is a security upgrade in theory and in practice (most of the time) vs normal DNS, firefox's implementation contains a fatal flaw in the default settings that make it effectively off unless you explicitly turn it on.
By default DoH in firefox is "oppurtunistic". Specifically if your upstream DNS makes
use-application-dns.net eplicitly not resolve firefox turns DoH off. Yes DNS is rather insecure and your ISP can do whatever it wants and that's kind of the problem. Firefox is depending on your system's DNS being secure to ... uh... secure appliation level dns in Firefox. See the problem yet? The real …
Today I get my airconditioner from amazon prime delivered, allegedly. It's june, it's humid and my window fan isn't cutting it. Nothing much changes in Jeff land yet the world is going insane at the moment. Alas politics is not the topic of this blog post.
The topic is... daily life.
It's saturday morning and I am doing bug triage on github as if it was a weekday. The work week has been going for the past 2 years or so as I am a workaholic and use work as an escape from my real life problems. I am still a shitty person in person and online. I don't think I ever grew up. Sometimes I wonder what I am doing, maybe this is an early mid life crisis. One thing for sure is that I need a non computer related hobby (yea, but like, can your non computer related …
This is a quick intro with how to use lokinet with dnscrypt-proxy on ubuntu/debian based distros to secure your dns queries from spying eyes, as requested by someone on an XMPP muc.
You want to first install
# apt update # apt install dnscrypt-proxy
lokinet see this blog post on how to do that.
By default your system will want to use
dnscrypt-proxy as system resolver, this is fine as you can
always forward dns for
.snode to lokinet.
/etc/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-proxy.toml you want to add an option to provide a fowarding file:
forwarding_rules = '/etc/dnscrypt-proxy/forwarding-rules.txt'
In a new file at
/etc/dnscrypt-proxy/forwarding-rules.txt'put the following forwarding rules:
loki 127.3.2.1 snode 127.3.2.1 0.10.in-addr.arpa 127.3.2.1
The first rule says to forward the
.loki gtld to lokinet …
New stable opentracker now online with announce urls:
This blog post will guide you through the process of installing lokinet using our apt repo and is aimed at people whom are just getting into linux and may not know how to do such.
If you want to learn don't copy paste, if you want it to just do stuff and don't care yeah just copy paste.
Open up a terminal, in stock ubuntu it's
control alt T.
Now we want to grab the apt repo's public keys, this is used to verify packages.
curl -s https://deb.imaginary.stream/public.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
(This requires you to enter your admin password because it is using sudo)
Next we want to add the apt repo to the system's apt repo list:
echo "deb https://deb.imaginary.stream $(lsb_release -sc) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/imaginary.stream.list
(This will auto detect what version …
i2pd (I2P Daemon) is a full-featured C++ implementation of I2P client.
I2P (Invisible Internet Protocol) is a universal anonymous network layer. All communications over I2P are anonymous and end-to-end encrypted, participants don't reveal their real IP addresses.
I2P client is a software used for building and using anonymous I2P networks. Such networks are commonly used for anonymous peer-to-peer applications (filesharing, cryptocurrencies) and anonymous client-server applications (websites, instant messengers, chat-servers).
I2P allows people from all around the world to communicate and share information without restrictions.
i2pd is licensed under the 3-clause BSD license, binary packages are available for Debian, Ubuntu, OS X, FreeBSD, Android and Windows.
Changelog for i2pd version 2.24:
Recently I happened across a bitcoin talk thread while peeking at my blog's http access log at a time when I should've been doing work instead.
I'll probably take this chance to make it very clear what llarp/lokinet is and is not and why it even exists in the first place.
I can say that, in my opinion, llarp/lokinet is
attempting to be a protocol to replace i2p.
I2P has a mountain of technical debt in their protocols that have been taking several (5+) years now to rectify. It is in fact easier to rewrite the whole thing than to rebase the protocol atop sanity. I am not the first person to suggest this by any means, nor the first to attempting it. The first attempt I have seen was the shadow protocol from 2013. For whatever reason it died off, I personally suspect it was because of …
my unofficial static arm build for i2pd 2.23.0 is up here.
make sure to check the signature and verify the hash
the build was compiled with
-Os and stripped for smaller size, so you may have better speed on systems without speculative execution like the raspberry pi 1.
