BitTorrent-Powered DNS Developed To Avoid Domain Seizures

BitTorrent-Powered DNS Developed To Avoid Domain Seizures

Recent domain seizures conducted by the US government, as well as upcoming COICA, which is going to make similar takeovers easier, served as an inspiration for a group of developers presenting a revolutionary decentralized BitTorrent-based DNS system.It is claimed to be able to exchange DNS data through P2P transfers, working with an absolutely new domain extension – .p2p. Such DNS system cannot be harmed by any governmental structure.

It seems to be pure irony, considering the fact that one of the first seized domains was that of the Torrent-Finder. Now the entirely new DNS system is developed, which is partly based on BitTorrent.

Actually, it’s rather easy for governments to take over the DNS entries of domain names – first of all because a few corporations managing top level domains collaborate with the American Department of Commerce. Today such setup is seen as a threat to the open Internet. In order to counter this situation, and in some way restrict the power authorities have over domains, several enthusiasts have begun developing an innovative system that is free from any government institution. The matter is that the system will be distributed by many people through a BitTorrent-powered client installed on their PCs.

Although the so-called “.P2P” project only started a couple days ago, its developers are already making progress. Their team is sure that a beta version of the application will be released shortly. The movement was embraced by lots of famous names in the P2P world, including The Pirate Bay’s Peter Sunde and people from EZTV.

The administrative part of the project has already been thought out: it is decided that OpenNIC, an alternative community-powered DNS network, will handle .p2p domain registration. Although the registration of the domain name will be absolutely free, the registrants will first be asked to prove they own a similar domain with another extension – this is done specifically to protect brands from scammers. In short words, it’s quite an interesting project and worth being watched.

As usual, the recent news shows that the government is always late with any kind of legislation or legal actions against the web: technology keeps staying a step ahead. Consequently, the more aggressive legislation gets, the more motivated online developers will respond.

menahunie avatarThis is just the next step in the evolution of the internet; Governments are only hasting it even faster.
There will be a day where you don't have to "register a domain"..
You would use a "smart search program" instead of a "search engine" to find what you want. Searches will be by content and not by a "domain" attached to that content to find it.
You would post to virtual public bulletin boards in the "clouds" of what you have and what you want.
Content filtering; censorship and much more will be as impossible today as it will be tomorrow.
As everyone knows all DNS "Domains" are just an index so no one duplicates the same domain..

Armando_G avatarThis relies on the honesty of the DNS server hosts.. all the data transfer goes through private servers and is open to abuse by the people p2p users are trying to avoid.

From their site : OpenNIC root servers are run by dedicated volunteers planet-wide. Since this is a volunteer effort, please be aware that server outages occur from time to time. OpenNIC is unable to guarantee the privacy of your Internet connection if you use one of our root servers, nor can we vouch for the integrity of the results you receive from OpenNIC. You absorb all risk associated with use of OpenNIC servers. If this is of concern to you, we recommend setting up your own personal DNS server.

so outside the control of the authorities in some ways.. but still not exactly safe..
