Yggdrasil is an implementation of a new name-independent routing scheme and functions as an end-to-end encrypted IPv6 network.

It is lightweight, easy to configure, supported on multiple platforms, and allows pretty much any IPv6-capable application to communicate securely with other Yggdrasil nodes. You do not need to have IPv6 Internet connectivity from your ISP — it also works just fine over IPv4.

The highlights of Yggdrasil are that it is:


Supports large, complex or even internet-scale topologies


Network responds quickly to connection failures or mobility events


Traffic sent across the network is always fully end-to-end encrypted


Works entirely ad-hoc by design with no built-in points of centralisation


Supported on Linux, macOS, Windows, iOS, Android and more

This is still an alpha-stage project and there may be some breaking changes in the future. Despite that, Yggdrasil is generally stable enough for day-to-day use and a small number of users have been using and stress-testing Yggdrasil quite heavily for a variety of use cases. If you are interested in or would like to get involved in the Yggdrasil project, start below:

Install and configure Yggdrasil on your own computer or router to join the network.
