    7777 * __What do you mean by "no trusted parties"?__
    78     * ''No trusted parties'' is an expression used in cryptography/privacy circles to indicate the nature of a network. It means, in essence, that there is no centralized infrastructure that needs to be relied on (and trusted) for I2P to function correctly, and furthermore, the design of I2P is explicitly such that centralized servers that assume critical roles withhin the network are not used. To compare and contrast, Tor uses trusted parties for its "directory servers" to map the network topology.
