I2P is a free application for maintaining a stable encrypted network. Unlike its few alternatives, with I2P the server sends traffic in one stream that contains both your own and other users’ data, which eliminates the risk of decrypting those data and finding out who they belong to.
The application utilizes several encryption methods; the incoming and outgoing traffic is passed between several users through different, regularly changing tunnels; computers’ real IP addresses are not used, which makes it even harder to identify a PC. In addition to that, this application provides all usual Internet capabilities.
