That is the advantage of this over Tor?

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.

Thank you for taking the time to write a proper justification!

DataDrake claimed this task.

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.

@DataDrake Any progress ?

DataDrake reassigned this task from DataDrake to Devil505.

@Devil505 If you can clean up your package.yml that you showed me on IRC and submit a patch to Differential with a Test Plan, I am willing to reconsider my previous decision.

Here are the files

But there is a missing running depend, it's java-service-wrapper

Some work need to be done, i've got some errors when i start the service
