Telehash is a peer to peer data distribution and communication protocol that is designed to be decentralised and secure.[4] The protocol is licensed under the Creative Commons Public domain.[5]

Telehash implementations were still in development by 2014.[6] As a security-sensitive application, it has yet to receive a third-party security review.[7] TeleHash is similar to BitTorrent Sync in that it allows users of the software to share data securely without any central server authority.[4] There are implementations in C, Python, Ruby, Erlang, Javascript, Go, and Objective-C.[3]

Telehash is used in the Locker project,[8] and was planned to be used as a communication and file transfer mechanism in Git-annex.[6][9] It is also used in the IBM-Samsung's ADEPT proof-of-concept, with Bitcoin and Ethereum.[10]
