Alliance v0.9.5 released - encryption finally implemented!

Postby litening » Tue Jan 09, 2007 1:46 pm

Hey,

Finally! Encryption is now implemented.

Download here:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... _id=166584

In addition to encryption the new version is more polite when running in backround mode. Here's the rest of the new features:

No. Not by default. This lowers the security slightly but makes private networks grow much faster.

well in that case i might actually just start using it again if it doesnt do that...ill try it out right now! :D

edit: is it possible youll stop using java and use something else?

edit: wasent there a way for everyone on your network to share with other from your own network? i thought there was thats why i was getting so many popups for people to share with others....i wish it was like just without the popups.

Actually this lowers security rather significantly if you can not control who is able to connect to you and verify what you are sharing. IMHO it's imperative that I must manually accept any and all connections to me.

eh.. no. :) that would require a complete rewrite of Alliance and that's not going to happen

That's exactly how it works! What made you think otherwise?

It's not like you are connecting to comletely random people - it's still only your friends friends. But yes, it does lower security. You need to unchek a checkbox under "Security" in options in order to go back to the high security approach where you need to manually approve every connection.

Yeah, and friend's friend's cousin's acquaintance from work... Pretty soon you're no better of than in a public network.

I want to be connected only to the very few users that I've hand picked myself. The great thing about Alliance is that they can be connected to me, but also choose who they want to be connected with and so on. Not everyone needs to be directly connected. :)

i think you need to have it you the least amount of memory so everyone can use it.

i meant i think you should go in the program's code and try to make it not use at much memory as possible.

It is nice to see a p2p program being developed so much. Two versions in a month is unheard of half the time in bigger clients these days it seems. :?
