Loki Foundation Projects
Loki Foundation’s purpose is to build open-source, metadata-free communications tools and apps that defend privacy in the digital world.
Lokinet is the low latency anonymous routing protocol, forming a fully decentralised overlay above the Loki Network. Anonymous routing protocols allow for users to form tunnels or paths through a distributed network, using multiple nodes as hops to obfuscate the destination and origin of data packets. Lokinet enables anonymous services, such as hidden websites and private chats.
Lokinet does not rely on trusted authorities and its state is fully derived from the blockchain. Users can connect to individual Service Nodes and create bidirectional paths for packets to be routed through. The network can be used to access internally hosted services called SNApps. Lokinet also enables users to browse the external internet without their IP address being exposed.
