Description: "I2P is an anonymous overlay network - a network within a network. It is intended to protect communication from dragnet surveillance and monitoring by third parties such as ISPs. I2P is used by many people who care about their privacy: activists, oppressed people, journalists and whistleblowers, as well as the average person."
I have been using both, and I can say
- I2P much faster than Tor
- Packet switched instead of circuit switched
- Unidirectional tunnels instead of bidirectional circuits, doubling the number of nodes a peer has to compromise to get the same information.
- Tunnels in I2P are short lived, decreasing the number of samples that an attacker can use to mount an active attack with, unlike circuits in Tor, which are typically long lived.
These are only few advantages over Tor, and there are many more.
At the moment it looks like I2P just builds an installer for you to run to install it wherever you like. Moreover, it doesn't seem to have any of the bits for systemd.
For now I'm going to close this. If in the future I don't have to reverse engineer their build process to package it, we can revisit this.
