tini2p makeup meeting time from yesterday!
0: Greetings
1: What's been done
a lot of updates for ECIES based on the spec updates
due to the nature of the original experimental impl, and the WIP status of 144, there were many divergences. many have been shored up, and now my impl more closely matches the current spec
progress can be tracked in my ecies branch
still need to write up the AckRequest message block, NewSession message variants, and ExistingSession message

tini2p all the other ECIES crypto, HKDF, and messages are updated
2: What's next
next up is the remaining message impl + processing
after that is in place, will be moving on to tunnel impl
once tunnel impl is in (probably 1-2 weeks, optimistically), tini2p routers should be able to talk to each other end-to-end
following some more testing, and writing fuzz suites, I will be moving to blinded LS2 impl to help with 149 spec testing
oh, forgot, Elligator2 impl is still needed for ECIES (saving for last since it will need to be custom crypto (oooooo scary)

tini2p will do my best to have a verified impl using the validation scripts
will also be pulling out Boost::Asio for standalone-ASIO, which should be a fairly straight-forward switch
and will likely switch to BearSSL for constant-time TLS, AES and other crypto
currently LibreSSL is only used for AES, so this should also be a straightforward swap
all of the items just listed will likely take me until alpha-release on 2019-07-10

tini2p hopefully, I will meet the alpha-release goal of tini2p routers being able to communicate with each other
if Java I2P and/or i2pd also have full ECIES + new tunnel impl (yet-to-be-written spec), will of course be doing integration tests with those routers to validate the new specs
somewhat long-view: post-alpha-release will largely consist of hammering out bugs, and solidifying remaining work on new specs. beta-release will contain those updates, and some work toward consumable APIs for client software (I2CP + SAMv3)
3: Next meeting time
