NewNode Kit: resilient peer-to-peer content delivery, no matter what

App developers around the world face the challenge of providing reliable access to their apps for a large user base. Content delivery can be expensive, networks can be unreliable, and disruptions, both natural and intentional, can cause total blackouts. NewNode Kit can add your app to a worldwide peer-to-peer content delivery system by just including the SDK. This software development kit (SDK) allows developers to seamlessly integrate the NewNode protocol into their apps, ensuring secure and uninterrupted access to content even in the face of censorship.

NewNode Kit Integration Benefits

NewNode Kit seamlessly replaces standard network calls with calls to NewNode’s network. NewNode protocol routes traffic via peers when it is faster but steps aside and allows it to flow direct if good direct connections can be made. NewNode offers developers resilience.

1. Resilience to Censorship: NewNode Kit ensures your app remains resilient to censorship attempts. Even if censors block specific DNS names or IP addresses associated with your content servers, data can still reach your app by taking new and unpredictable routes each time. This makes it virtually impossible to block access effectively.

2. Resilience to Network Outages: In cases where standard WiFi or 4G networks become unavailable due to technical malfunctions, natural disasters, or government-led shutdowns, users can still access your app's content through the NewNode protocol. This ensures uninterrupted service and maintains user engagement.

3. Resilience to Deep Packet Inspection (DPI): NewNode encrypts and obfuscates all traffic, making it indistinguishable from BitTorrent traffic on the wire. This prevents Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) techniques from filtering out traffic based on its source or content, ensuring your app remains accessible.

4. Asynchronous Content Delivery: Unlike traditional CDNs, NewNode offers asynchronous content delivery. If a local NewNode network becomes isolated from the rest of the world, users can still access cached data from any nodes within their reach.
