CENSORSHIP RESISTANCE

Free Speech, expression, assembly, association for all humanity.


...

Freedom of Speech

A principle that supports the freedom of an individual or a community to articulate their opinions and ideas without fear of retaliation, censorship, or sanction. The term "freedom of expression" is sometimes used synonymously but includes any act of seeking, receiving, and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.


...

Censorship

The suppression of speech, public communication, or other information, on the basis that such material is considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, politically incorrect or "inconvenient" as determined by government authorities or by community consensus.

What are the core beliefs that drive this mission?


EVERYONE - including criminals and unethical people - have a natural right to Freedom of Speech, Expression, Association, and Assemble.



all relationships must be voluntary.

privacy is the bedrock of freedom.

we should be able to communicate as we please privately.

transparency in code and governance.

we own our data and should be the ones that profit from it.

self-sovereign identity – people must establish and maintain their own identities, not by 3rd parties.

self-sovereign money – people must be their own bank indebted to no one with the keys to their money.

1M5 PROTOCOL

The following components comprise the protocol:


...

Censorship Resistant Routing

Using I2P as the basis for routing over the internet, direct wireless ad-hoc networks when the internet is not accessible, and Tor for communicating with non-anonymous nodes in the clearnet. Pluggable feature supports the addition of other networks.

...

Micro-Services DApp Platform

1M5 is a micro-service platform for developing decentralized applications within a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and a Staged Event-Driven Architecture (SEDA) supporting routing between services using a routing service that implements Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) and Decentralized Routing Algorithms.

...

I2P

The Invisible Internet Project - an anonymous overlay network. Provides garlic-routing, layered encryption, and uni-directional channels for IP anonymity. Best for communicating P2P with other I2P users.

...

Tor

The Onion Router (TOR) - Provides onion-routing, layered encryption, and bi-directional channels for IP anonymity. Best for accessing clearnet web sites/services.

...

1DN

A direct wireless ad-hoc network using Radio and LiFi to support private communications outside of the internet.

...

Decentralized IDentifier

Pluggable, decentralized, people and/or automation-controlled universal ID, called DID or Decentralized IDentifier.

...

Key Ring

Encryption and Signing keys kept safe on specialized flash drives where once added they can not be read nor changed. Encryption and signing happens on-drive only. OpenPGP used for standards support.

...

Info Vault

The platform allows for the user to grant access control to their personal information on their device if desired. Access can be revoked when its no longer desired for them to have it. This will end widespread data breaches.

SOLUTIONS

Current solution in progress is the Proxy service with a Browser, phone, and DoT devices/drones coming in the future.

Proxy
In Active Development

1M5 Proxy Service acts as a proxy for your favorite browser routing all clearnet and .onion requests through Tor and all .i2p requests through I2P. When Tor gets blocked, it uses I2P/1DN to find a peer with Tor unblocked to complete the request.

Browser
Researching

Pre-configured bundling of Tor Browser with 1M5 Proxy for ease of use.

Phone
Planning
  • Minimalist phone on open hardware and software with no closed or proprietary systems.
  • Only 1M5 core with sensors, proxy, browser, and messenger will be installed.
  • Only additional 1M5 based services and applications will be supported.
  • Hardware will be based on Raspberry Pi Zero W.
  • Operating system will be a minimal Linux From Scratch (LFS) build.
  • To include camera and microphone.
  • Will use 1DN (the outernet: full spectrum Radio + LiFi) and internet (Tor + I2P) when necessary.
  • Perfect for places with no infrastructure and people being targeted.
  • Only sold for BTC.
  • Its price is expected to be roughly 1m satoshis (~100 EUR).
  • Purchases delivered by requested location drone drop.
DoT Device
Planning
  • Minimalist Decentralization of Things (DoT) headless devices on open hardware and software with no closed or proprietary systems.
  • Only 1M5 core with sensors will be installed while only additional 1M5 based services will be supported.
  • Hardware will be based on Raspberry Pi Zero W.
  • Operating system will be a minimal Linux From Scratch (LFS) build.
  • Will use 1DN (the outernet: full spectrum Radio + LiFi) and internet (Tor + I2P) when necessary.
  • Perfect for places with no infrastructure.
DoT Drone
Planning
  • Places the DoT device within a mobile platform.
  • Multiple drones will be available for specific use cases.

Interested in decentralizing many of the existing applications? Some ideas for introducing voluntary markets, open private communications, decentralized ride sharing and decentralized personal lodging.

Collaborate

SUPPORT 1M5

1M5 is an open source project powered by volunteers, bounties and gifts. In the spirit of open source and censorship resistance, we have opted to create 1M5 without the demands or influence of investors nor governments.


GitHub
Gift to the 1M5 Development Fund

If you support this project and are in a position to help that would be wonderful. Please request a bitcoin address using a contact method below.

Gifts to 1M5 are not tax deductible as it is not formally registered in any jurisdiction. By gifting Bitcoin to the 1M5 gift wallet, you will be helping 1M5 pay for our direct costs like web hosting, domain names, outsourced work, bounties, and so on. If you wish to support it anonymously, we recommend using Bisq as it uses Tor and using a source of Bitcoin that doesn't have your identity attached to it.
