     1= Distributed Domain Name System (DNS) =
     2The current DNS system (which goes by the name SusiDNS) is extremely simple. The routing through the network causes extra latency, so a traditional DNS system would not be possible/slow down I2P. This is why the current system uses a textfile on the local computer, containing the destinations of eepsites. Updates are retrieved by getting the textfiles from 'trusted' eepsites. As an alternative, there is a system using base32 hostnames, like in Tor.
     3The idea for this task would be that the DNS system needs to turn into a distributed, easily updatable system.[[BR]]
