Multipath TCP —

Another part of the DarkPi project has fallen into place with the announcement of the Multipath TCP protocol for the Linux kernal.

The protocol allows the transfer of information over multiple connections. This will enable the DarkPi to do two things. First, it allows for better resource allocation. On a distributed network like that established between DarkPi nodes, network bandwidth is at a premium. Secondly, it will theoretically allow the end user’s connection to be split between multiple exit nodes, increasing the difficulty of tracking an end user.

Final thought. I recently have been contemplating the addition of a FreedomPop device. This would let any DarkPi become an exit node. This may or may not be practical, given that FreedomPop does require some registration information to activate a device, and their privacy policy isn’t the best.
