Free/Open Source Project of the Week

The Free/Open Source Project of the Week is Cryptosphere.

"The Cryptosphere is a global peer-to-peer cryptosystem for publishing and securely distributing content anonymously with no central point of failure. The system is openly federated and anyone can join. To ensure quality service and prevent abuse, the Cryptosphere uses an integrated cryptographically secure reputation system which provides a distributed web of trust." [1]

Cryptosphere, Tahoe-LAFS and Freenet share similar goals. Cryptosphere's creator cites Tahoe-LAFS has a source of inspiration for Cryptosphere's design. Cryptosphere hopes to strike a balance between Freenet and MojoNation.
