RetroShare Instant Messenger is the next generation sharing network, which provides:

* A private Peer to Peer (P2P) Network which allows you to share information with only the friends you want to: So actually this Instant Messenger is a Friends-to-Friends Network.
* RetroShare Instant Messenger offers reliable Identification and Authentication of your trusted friends (RSA-Keys).
* An Introduction Scheme to bootstrap your friends over a Distributed Hash Table (DHT), which connects you your friends and facilitates network growth by easy connecting. Friends of Friends never connect.
* Because you connect direct and enryepted only to your trusted friends, it is a fast and safe transfer of files. No other open and serverless Instant Messenger has such enhanced Filesharing capabilities like you find here.
* Encrypted Communication, ensuring all shared information is known only to you and your trusted friends (neighbour peers).
* A Communication Platform which can potentially support services such as Secure Email to all of your friends, File Sharing, Video or Voice over IP and of course Instant Messaging.
* Roundabout, it is a decentralised (serverless), open source, social Sharing Network designed *for Friends* with no dependancies on any corporate system or central servers.
