The MUTE Network (or MUTE-net) is an unmaintained peer-to-peer file sharing network developed with anonymity in mind.

The MUTE client is open source software released under the Public domain and includes support for the Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows computer operating systems.

All MUTE compatible clients use RSA encryption to exchange keys, and AES (128 bits) to encrypt stream data.[2]

History of MUTE[edit]

MUTE was developed by Jason Rohrer using a routing algorithm based on ant colony optimization.[3]

In the same period of time (mid 2000's), MUTE was competed by the software AntsP2P.[4]

Software compatible with MUTE network[edit]

  • Calypso (launched in 2010, had the project to fork the source code of Kommute [5])
