"Pest" v. 0xFF.

What follows is a long-promised detailed specification of a DDOS-proof, CPU-inexpensive, ciphered-authenticated peer-to-peer communication protocol.

I would like to thank Thimbronion for implementing a large subset of this spec already despite not having seen it yet!

The document (very much a work in progress!) is available as a vtree. You will need:

Add the above vpatches and seals to your V-set, and press to pest_spec.kv.vpatch.

To "compile" the document to HTML, run make (this requires the "markdown2" utility.)

Please submit any proposed changes to this spec in vpatch form.

The full text is reproduced below, and any reader able to spare the time for a careful reading is invited to comment!
This version is obsolete! Please read v. 0xFE !
