Welcome to "Tahoe"

Tahoe is a secure, decentralized, fault-tolerant filesystem. All of the source code is available under a choice of two Free Software, Open Source licences. This filesystem is encrypted and spread over multiple peers in such a way that it remains available even when some of the peers are unavailable, malfunctioning, or malicious. The one-page summary explains the unique properties of this system.

Get Started

Live web gateway -- try Tahoe without installing it! (See also the TestGrid Page on the wiki.)

"Install Tahoe" tells how to install it on your own system.

Get Involved

The tahoe-dev mailing list is the community forum. The tahoe-announce mailing list is a low-volume mailing list for announcements.

The Dev page is the place to start hacking on Tahoe.


See the Doc page for explanation of how Tahoe works.

Sponsorship sponsors the Tahoe project by providing hardware and data-center facilities along with the initial developer time. We are eternally grateful for their generous and public-spirited support. Please contact if you would like to sponsor Tahoe too!
