[Prop123] New NetDB Entries

Post by zzz »

We will soon wrap up the specification work for NTCP2 (proposal 111). The next proposal we plan to work on is proposal 123, New NetDB Entries (but in shorthand, we often refer to as "LS2" for Leaseset version 2, which is a portion of the full proposal.

This proposal was posted 2 1/2 years ago, but is an update of proposal 110, posted 4 1/2 years ago. We have made essentially no progress in recent years. At 34C3 in December, we agreed that our priorities for the year were 1) NTCP2 and 2) LS2, so it's almost time to start working on LS2. One of the primary goals of LS2 is to enable new encryption algorithms to replace ElGamal. Other sections of proposal 123 address improved support for encrypted leasesets, multhoming, and service lookup.

We plan to use the same process that we have successfully used for NTCP2: Open, weekly meetings in IRC attended by all interested parties, research conducted by all parties, rapid iteration and decision making, weekly updates to the proposal posted on our website, fast prototyping, and interoperability testing.

As with NTCP2, the issues are complex, the array of choices is large, and there are numerous viewpoints and preferences that must be reconciled.
Anybody considering participation in the process should start by reviewing the following documents:

- Proposal 123 LS2 https://geti2p.net/spec/proposals/123-new-netdb-entries
- Proposal 136 experimental sig types https://geti2p.net/spec/proposals/136-e ... l-sigtypes
- Proposal 137 optional sig types https://geti2p.net/spec/proposals/137-optional-sigtypes
- Proposal 142 new crypto template https://geti2p.net/spec/proposals/142-n ... o-template
- Discussion threads on zzz.i2p for each of the above proposals, linked from the proposal pages
- http://zzz.i2p/topics/2494 2018 proposal priorities
- http://zzz.i2p/topics/2418 ECIES proposal
- http://zzz.i2p/topics/1768 new asymmetric crypto overview
- Low-level crypto overview https://geti2p.net/spec/cryptography

I expect we will schedule the first meeting for late June or early July. I will announce the meeting in this thread at least one week in advance.
