Two researchers for Hewlett-Packard have created a browser-based 
darknet, an idea that could make it easier for businesses to keep 
eavesdroppers from uncovering confidential information.

Darknets are encrypted peer-to-peer networks normally used to 
communicate files between closed groups of people. Most darknets 
require a certain level of technological literacy to set up and 
maintain, including taking care of the necessary servers. However, HP 
researchers Billy Hoffman and Matt Wood plan next week to demonstrate 
a browser-based darknet called "Veiled," which they claim requires 
little proficiency to set up and run.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
