Awesome I2P


A curated list of awesome I2P implementations, libraries, resources, projects, and shiny things. Inspired by awesome-tor and awesome-cpp and other awesome lists.

What is I2P?

I2P is an anonymous overlay network - a network within a network. It is intended to protect communication from dragnet surveillance and monitoring by third parties such as ISPs. I2P is used by many people who care about their privacy: activists, oppressed people, journalists and whistleblowers, as well as the average person.


The I2P Project



  • I2P - The first implementation. Written in Java.
  • I2P Android - Android release of the I2P router. (Google play)
  • I2P Android - Android release of the I2P router. (F-Droid)


  • I2Pd - A C++ implementation of a I2P router.
  • Kovri - The Kovri I2P Router Project, a fork of I2Pd by the Monero project.

Projects using I2P

  • I2P-Bote - I2P-Bote is a plugin for I2P that allows users to send and receive emails while preserving privacy. It does not need a mail server because emails are stored in a distributed hash table. They are automatically encrypted and digitally signed, which ensures no one but the intended recipient can read the email, and third parties cannot forge them.
  • I2P-Bote Android - Android release of I2P-Bote. (Google Play)
  • Syndie - Syndie is an open source system for operating distributed forums, offering a secure and consistent interface to various anonymous and non-anonymous content networks.
  • i2pdbrowser - i2pd browser bundle.
  • Anoncoin - The Anoncoin project.
  • Monero - Monero is a secure, private, and untraceable cryptocurrency. It is open-source and accessible to all. With Monero, you are your own bank. Only you control and are responsible for your funds. Your accounts and transactions are kept private from prying eyes.
  • GOSTCoin - GOSTCoin (GST) is a digital currency based on blockchain technology. It allows instant payments worldwide with focus on privacy and security of its users.
  • Transmission-I2P - Anonymous torrent client Transmission-I2P.
  • MaladaN-Messenger-Client - An end to end encrypted Messenger that uses the signal protocol over the I2P network.
  • i2pchat - I2PChat. Previously I2P Qt Messenger.
  • cliqueclique - p2p forum on top of i2p.


  • i2p-tools - This tool provides a secure and efficient reseed server for the I2P network. There are several utility commands to create, sign, and validate SU3 files.
  • I2PMonitor - I2P monitor and control application for Mac OS X.
  • darkweb-everywhere - HTTPS Everywhere rulesets for hidden services and eepsites.
  • i2p-tools - Assorted I2P tools and scripts.
  • i2pberry - I2Pberry - I2P for the Raspberry Pi.
  • i2pd-tools - Some useful tools for I2P.
  • pyreseeder - Reseed data managment tools for I2P.
  • transi2p - Transparent proxying for I2P and forwarding other addresses to Tor or clearnet.
  • fl - Reverse proxy to Flibusta via Tor or I2P.
  • si-i2p-plugin - An experimental approach to provide a destination-isolating mechanism for http-over-i2p.


Self Hosted

  • tahoe-lafs-i2p - Tahoe-LAFS is a Free and Open decentralized cloud storage system. It distributes your data across multiple servers. Even if some of the servers fail or are taken over by an attacker, the entire file store continues to function correctly, preserving your privacy and security.
  • py-i2phosts - py-i2phosts is a hostnames registration engine for I2P.
  • i2spy - Takes stats from many i2p nodes, and holds them in a centralized location.
  • i2pjump - I2P jump service. A sort of slave DNS server for I2P.
  • - Web portion of, an I2P inProxy.
  • i2p-reseeder - I2P Reseeder written in Python (WSGI).
  • MaladaN-Messenger-Server - MaladaN Messenger Server end, for messaging using the signal protocol through I2P.
