== New URI (f2f://) ==
 +
 +
[http://altruists.org/ff103 This presentation] introduces ''f2f://'' as a new URI, intended to be searched for in a decentralised fashion by asking one's friends. This could be in addition to, rather than as a replacement for centralised resolution (traditional ''http://'' style), to work as a fallback in case the central point were unavailable. The format is
 +
 +
''f2f://'' REQUESTER'S-PUBLIC-KEY:''RECIPIENT'S-PUBLIC-KEY''@''f2f.name/robin/etc''
 +
 +
The inclusion of the keys in the URI adds security to the request. Only the intended recipient of the request can decode it, and the recipient's private key is provided to allow the recipient to encrypt the answer such that only the requester can read it, and not any of the men in the middle who are needed for a decentralised search.
