- 4. How it Works
I2P uses bundeled encryption over a multi-proxy like Tor. The packets are bounced all over the globe with anyone using I2P. However, the packets are encrypted with ElGamal and AES encryption. Using bundled encryption like this allows a packet to only decrypt the next hop as it passes through various nodes on its path. I2P is end-to-end encryption. Nothing is else is decrypted along its path including the sender and recipient. Once inside the network ip addresses are not even used. Your node is assigned an address of garbled text to use as an identifier. I2P is also a decentralized network. Every client is also a server on the network. This allows no single point of failure and more anonymity. There are tons of documents in the I2P control panel explaining this more in depth. For now, that should give you a good overview on how I2P works.
