bookmark_borderOur public Yggdrasil Network Peer is now online.

We love supporting network projects that aim to help keep users anonymous and private. It’s why we run high performance I2P Network Routers to help route traffic and donate bandwidth to the Invisible Internet Project and have plans to implement TOR relays and exits. Like most networks, the anonymity, reliability and overall performance is directly related to how many available nodes are available to handle and pass traffic. It appears Yggdrasil is no different in that regard, and we’re happy to announce our Luxembourg based Yggdrasil Network Peer is now online and available as a resource to all.

Yggdrasil is an early-stage implementation of a fully end-to-end encrypted IPv6 network. It is lightweight, self-arranging, supported on multiple platforms and allows pretty much any IPv6-capable application to communicate securely with other Yggdrasil nodes. Yggdrasil does not require you to have IPv6 Internet connectivity – it also works over IPv4.

Installation is a breeze, and you can find the install notes on Yggdrasil’s official website here: https://yggdrasil-network.github.io/installation-linux-deb.html


Now, before you can get started browsing the Yggdrasil network, you must first configure Yggdrasil to peer with a network node. In the configuration example below, we’re using our own node.

Modify /etc/yggdrasil.conf so that your peers section reflects below.

Peers: [
tls://107.189.4.167:42024
]

You can find more public peers here: https://publicpeers.neilalexander.dev/ (Note, we are not yet listed on the public peers page but I suspect we will be soon) . One, two or three peers that are relatively geographically close to you should suffice in your setup.

So far, the Yggdrasil Peer is not pushing much traffic. We hope that it will get more use in the future. The image shows the last 48 hours of network traffic.
