[NMDF] 0.4/0.1BTC - Namecoin Tor/I2P Support Firefox Plugin

Post by phelix » Fri Nov 08, 2013 4:00 pm

Namecoin Marketing and Development Fund Bounty Offer

Firefox Plugin to support d/namespace --> Tor / I2P

0.4BTC for Tor
additional 0.1BTC for I2P

Should be based on biolizard89's TLS plugin: http://nf.bit/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=552
Should support TLS
Should work on Windows and Linux (of course Mac would be nice, too)
Should support explicit method calling something like this: http://nf.bit/viewtopic.php?p=4857

Post here if you want to add to the bounty.

Edit: biolizard has the first call as he is already planing on it

What would the plugin consist of exactly?

Do you simply want to be able to access .bit domains via TOR and/or I2P?

Browsing .bit domains via TOR would be as simple as patching the torbutton extension to include namecoin dns lookups via TOR when a .bit domain was encountered.

I2P will be hard as there is only one exit node on the entire I2P network at the moment and it is quite discerning on who/what it allows through.

Using .bit as a eepsite would require a patch to the I2P code if I am not mistaken.

I take it you haven't read the .bit specification... the bounty is for having .bit domains resolve to Tor hidden services or I2P eepsites rather than IP addresses.

EDIT: And yes, I will attempt to implement this.

@phelix, am I correct in assuming that support for the .b32.i2p domain syntax is sufficient to achieve the I2P bounty? I don't see any benefit to also supporting the hosts-file syntax, since it's not deterministic and will give users a false sense of security. There's a third syntax that I can't find any documentation on, and which even the I2P web interface seems incapable of turning into a hyperlink... so I don't see much benefit in supporting it either if the I2P devs aren't supporting it.

EDIT: Also, do you require TLS support for .onion/.i2p domains, or just for IP domains (as works already)? I think TLS will work fine with no modifications on .onion and .i2p domains, but it's really rare for a server to use that feature (since it's only useful for security if the server is on Whonix or something), so I don't have the ability to test it (unless you can point me to a public server that has it enabled).

It would bring us forward a lot if it will be implemented so I contribute also with 0.2 BTC bounty for resolving .bit to .onion address with a Firefox plugin. (TLS support at least for IP should remain)
0.1 BTC for Windows(XP-W8.1 range) and 0.1 BTC for Linux(Debian/Ubuntu/Xubuntu on the latest 3 stable versions)

whatever you think is right/efficient
EDIT: Also, do you require TLS support for .onion/.i2p domains, or just for IP domains (as works already)? I think TLS will work fine with no modifications on .onion and .i2p domains, but it's really rare for a server to use that feature (since it's only useful for security if the server is on Whonix or something), so I don't have the ability to test it (unless you can point me to a public server that has it enabled).
Then I guess it will be tested when someone sets up a Tor server with TLS then. IMHO a cool feature.

Note that you'll need to enable Tor and/or I2P resolving in the FreeSpeechMe settings, and you'll need to have a Tor/I2P SOCKS proxy running. I2P by default uses an HTTP proxy, which will not work -- that can be changed in the web interface for I2P.

I am still testing. So far it looks very good :mrgreen:

I could not yet get it running in the Tor browser bundle... do you have any idea why that could be? I deactivated the https everywhere extension to no avail.

It works fine with normal Firefox: http://duskgytldkxiuqc6.onion --> http://federalistpapers.bit
