- Q2q is a protocol for:
- opening authenticated connections, even through NAT
- allowing a user to reliably demonstrate their identity (for distributed authentication)
- receiving real-time data directly from other users
Q2Q provides a mechanism for a user to decide whether they want to expose their IP address to a third party before accepting a peer-to-peer connection.
It is byte-stream oriented and application-agnostic. Any peer-to-peer application can use Q2Q to open connections and deliver messages.
Divmod Vertex is the Divmod implemention of Q2Q.
