Project Meshnet aims to build a sustainable decentralized alternative internet. You can help in several ways from spreading the word, starting up your first Cjdns node, or starting a local meshnet group.
Project Meshnet was created out of the /r/darknetplan community in order to fight back against Internet censorship by corporations and governments around the world. It aims to use a combination of software and hardware to achieve the goal of a censorship-free Internet. The software component, called Cjdns, is being used right now to create a network called Hyperboria. Hyperboria is a network that operates securely over the current Internet infrastructure. Along with this network, Project Meshnet is also working to help setup hardware installations in communities around the globe, creating mesh “islands”, which will then tie into Hyperboria. These mesh islands are completely immune to any form of censorship.
Project Meshnet can mostly be helped right now by those with a medium to high level of skill with the technologies involved. Both the software and hardware packages are in the very early Alpha stages and need as much assistance as possible to get off the ground. However, if you are not tech-savvy but can find a tech-savvy user to work with, you should still be able to contribute substantially to the project. Below you will find a guide on how to best assist the project and further its goals. It should help you find both hardware and instruct you in installing Cjdns.
Cjdns is a routing engine designed for security, scalability, speed and ease-of-use. The dream: You type ./cjdns and give it an interface which connects another node and it gives you an IPv6 address (generated from a public encryption key) and a virtual network card (TUN device) through which you can connect to the Cjdns network you have chosen. For example, the largest current Cjdns network is called Hyperboria.
