Hi everyone,

We are happy to announce our first release of coniks-go, a re-implementation of CONIKS [1] in Golang:
https://github.com/coniks-sys/coniks-go/releases/tag/0.1.0 <https://github.com/coniks-sys/coniks-go/releases/tag/0.1.0>

This project started as a Google Summer of Code project in 2016 as a collaboration between the TorMessenger Project, Princeton University, and the EPFL with the goal of integrating CONIKS into Tor Messenger [1]. Coding-wise most heavy lifting was done by Huy [2] with the mentorship of Marcela [3], Arlo [3], and Ismail [3].

Although, coniks-go certainly still has some open issues and rough edges [4] we feel that now is a good time for a first release to get some early feedback from the community and potential collaborators on board.

Find the project’s code and further pointers to the (API) documentation [5] here:
https://github.com/coniks-sys/coniks-go <https://github.com/coniks-sys/coniks-go>

Feedback on the implementation is much appreciated. Feel free to comment and to ask questions here on the mailing list or directly open issues on Github [6].

For usage instructions please have a look at the project’s Readme [7].

To get an idea of the next steps for this project, we invite you to look at the project’s Github milestones [8] as well as our past developer meeting notes [9]. We also plan to continue working on a Tor Messenger integration.

Looking forward to your feedback,
The CONIKS team [10]
