cryptic6 is an encrypted P2P protocol based on ideas from Virtual Private Networks and Stanly Milgrim's essays on 6 Degrees of Separation.

VPNs, such as WASTE, though exceptionally secure, are missing the most popular feature of other P2P programs, that is connecting to people you don't personally know. cryptic6 would allow you to connect to untrusted nodes through mutually trusted nodes. Two parties would not usually separated by more than six degrees. The network would have some similarity to WASTE, using public key encryption to connect directly to all trusted nodes, but would have the advantage of connecting to the larger network by proxying though chains of nodes.
