Dust is a protocol designed to provide log unobservability in order to implement Kopcell’s concept of blocking resistance as a necessary requirement to achieve censorship resistance. The Dust protocol is designed to protect against attackers who use the Fingerprinting Protocol’s Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) to block or limit connections. To establish protocol unobservability, all packets consist entirely of encrypted or random disposable bytes and random packets indistinguishable from each other.

Dust is made to defend against current attacks, which work by comparing protocol fingerprints against blacklists of well-known protocols. Whitelist filtering can be used as a straightforward defense against the Dust protocol instead of blacklist filtering.

The DUST protocol belongs to the NFT project DeGod. This is an “experimental collection” of brightly colored profile pictures output on the Solana (SOL) blockchain. The DUST protocol is a utility token in the DeGods NFT collection. NFT holders can earn DUST by gambling their tokens.
