Anomos is an encrypted multi-peer-to-peer file distribution protocol that provides arguably the most secure P2P downloading on the net.

The reason for this is that Anomos encrypts connections at both the source and receiving end. The disadvantage is that Anomos doesn't work with normal .torrent files - it requires it's own .atorrent format although Anomos allows you to take .torrent files and convert them to .atorrent.

Anomos is based on the peer/tracker concept of BitTorrent but also in combination with an onion routing anonymization layer. Added to the end-to-end encryption, this creates a highly secure download network. In theory, no one will be able to detect the P2P file exchanges as they would be able with a normal P2P client.

Anomos is extremely easy to use. It uses Python, however, to open the main interface which looks very basic and can be very unresponsive. Sometimes it takes a few clicks to get Anomos to respond to browse the the correct folder for your torrents. As yet, there's no directory of .atorrents either but as mentioned earlier, you can convert .torrent files browsing the "File" and conversion option.

Anomos can also be a bit tricky to understand if something goes wrong. Downloads tend to disappear and your only option is to click on the Log reports to see what happened to your torrents.

Anomos is an innovative and highly secure P2P app that provides secure downloads but is still in the very early stages of development.
