i2pd (I2P Daemon) is a full-featured C++ implementation of I2P client.

I2P client is a software used for building and using anonymous I2P
networks. Such networks are commonly used for anonymous peer-to-peer

I2P allows people from all around the world to communicate and share information
without restrictions.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
