Anomos is a pseudonymous, encrypted multi-peer-to-peer file distribution protocol. It is based on the peer/tracker concept of BitTorrent in combination with an onion routing anonymization layer, with the added benefit of end-to-end encryption. By combining these technologies, we have created a platform where by no party outside of the trusted tracker will have any information about who a peer is or what they are downloading.
Anomos is designed to be easy to use – you won’t even be aware of the security that it provides. Anybody who is already familiar with BitTorrent won’t have to do anything differently, other than use ‘atorrent’ files rather than ‘torrent’ files.

A more technical introduction is avaliable in this blog post. It’s a bit outdated, as the final protocol is still under active development. Soon, we’ll be releasing a complete guide to the Anomos protocol. The FAQ may provide some answers to any questions you may have.

The source code is available in our Git repository. Downloads of releases are available on the downloads page.
