I've created a new Key Exchange Server - it contains all known Hosts & Keys from this blog as of today, October 12, 2013.
I also highly recommend the use of Bitmessage for secure & anonymous communication.
The Bitmessage NULLNET Chan details are:
Feel free to continue to use the blog for discussion of the nullnet. :)
BlackBelt WASTE is pre-configured to connect you to the nullnet.
IMPORTANT: Waste 1.7 is out and *breaks* Waste 1.6. If you're using Waste 1.6 you should upgrade to Waste 1.7.
Go to the WASTE Key Exchange and add add your public key & host (if you're connectable). There is no network name/password - this is a nullnet.
Add all of the Public Keys from the WASTE Key Exchange.
Wait a few days for a few people to add your keys
Start trying to connect to available hosts / wait for hosts to connect to you.
- Maintain at least 4 or 5 connections (View > Network Status).
- Periodically broadcast your public key on the network (File > Preferences > Private Key>
- Similarly, always accept incoming keys and rebroadcast them. (File > Preferences > Pending Keys) If you don't do these thee steps you won't be able to connect to anyone else, and if I drop out, you'll lose connection to the network.
- Very high levels of encryption (higher than the default) slow your speed down considerably as the encryption overhead takes over. The default level of encryption is fine.
