Delft University of Technology’s researchers have taken up a challenge of creating a BitTorrent client which will preserve the privacy of its users. They have already designed a prototype called Tribler client which can work in a decentralized fashion. That means it can work normally even if the Torrent servers are down. The head of the research team iterated,”We’re going to take Internet privacy to the next level”. BitTorrent users are regularly looking for anonymity, but right now the options of anonymity are limited.

For a monthly fee, BitTorrent users can register with a VPN or proxy to hide their IP-address. Free options with suitable speeds or without other restrictions are not easily available. The question is,how would the team remove the lack of fast, unlimited and free anonymous BitTorrent options which they want to change. Researchers said that the Tribler client already has been around for more than half a decennial, and during that time it is developed into the only truly decentralized BitTorrent client out there.

Dr. Johan Pouwelse from Stanford University has discussed about the past and the future of Tribler. He said “Our goal is to provide all users with the download speed which today can only be found in private BitTorrent communities, combined with the privacy that is currently only offered by paid VPN services”. Pouwelse also said “Experimental results have shown that the performance of the proposed mechanism is better than that of regular BitTorrent in a large number of scenarios. At the same time, the proxy layer can be used to offer the users a shield of plausible deniability enhancing their privacy”.

The Triber team has been checking the technology for years and it will be released in the next two to three months. If you want to install the current version of Tribler, you can check the Tribler site.
