Mixin Kernel Peer to Peer Network Upgrade

Mixin Kernel

Today Mixin Kernel v0.18 Stealth Phasmidsopen in new window is released, and brings a new peer to peer network layer that improves security and privacy of the signer node.

With the new P2P network layer, the signer node is not needed to be exposed to the public internet, and we recommend all signer nodes block connections on all UDP/TCP ports through their firewalls.

To upgrade to the new network layer, all signer nodes need to do a small modification to their config.toml file as below:

+# the UDP port for communcation with other nodes
+port = 5850
+# the seed relayer nodes list
+seeds = [
+       "06ff8589d5d8b40dd90a8120fa65b273d136ba4896e46ad20d76e53a9b73fd9f@seed.mixin.dev:5850"
+# a relayer needs a public address to listen and relay messages to other nodes
+# a signer should set this value to false for security
+relayer = false
+# metric different message types sent and received
+metric = false
+# enable rpc access by setting a valid TCP port number
+port = 8239
