    Peek-A-Booty goes public

    Peek-A-Booty, cDc's much vaunted anonymity app, is vaporware no more -- it went public at the landmark CodeCon conference in San Francisco's DNA Lounge on Sunday.

    Peek-A-Booty is designed to let surfers access sites blocked by government restrictions, and is essentially, a distributed proxy network. It uses a peer-to-peer model, masking the identity of each node. So the user can route around censorship that blocks citizens' access to specific IP addresses, because the censor doesn't know they're going there. If you're a Peek-A-Booty node, you might be doing it on their behalf. So the software isn't itself a browser, but simply requires the user to use localhost in the proxy field of their preferred browser.
