Unmanaged Internet Protocol (UIP) re-implements the original ARPAnet vision of scalable, robust, any-to-any communication between all participating hosts, on the discontinuous and rapidly changing fabric of the modern Internet. In essence, UIP stitches together the currently fragmented Internet into a single network with uniform addressing and universal connectivity. UIP provides decentralized, management-free routing among hosts on the existing IPv4 and IPv6 Internets, hosts on private networks behind firewalls and network address translators, mobile hosts with ephemeral IP addresses, and hosts on experimental or ad-hoc wireless networks with no IP-based connectivity. Applications address other UIP nodes using self-certifying cryptographic identities that can be created by anyone, require no centralized administration, and remain valid as long as desired even as nodes move. All communication between UIP nodes is integrity- and privacy-protected by default, making application-specific security protocols unnecessary.
