GNUnet is a fully decentralized P2P framework for a number of applications, the most commonly used one (probably) is filesharing.
GNUnet is a framework for secure peer-to-peer networking that does not use any centralized or otherwise trusted services. Its high-level goal is to provide a strong free software foundation for a global network that provides security and in particular respects privacy.
GNUnet started with an idea for anonymous censorship-resistant file-sharing, but has grown to incorporate other applications as well as many generic building blocks for secure networking applications. In particular, GNUnet now includes the GNU Name System, a privacy-preserving, decentralized public key infrastructure.
GNUnet is an official GNU package. GNUnet can be downloaded from GNU and the GNU mirrors.
