Transports

The Basics

I2P comes with two encrypted transport layer technologies that allow Kovri to securely use TCP/IP connections. These technologies (SSU and NTCP) are called Transports.

In-depth information

SSU is encrypted UDP and NTCP is encrypted TCP. They provide encryption at the transport layer so higher level Messages can be sent through Tunnels across the I2P network.
