ftz LGI

Reference implementation of Libre Gaming Infrastructure

LGI is a framework designed to unify libre games. It provides features for handling user accounts, server list and other. It creates a peer-to-peer network of servers which help each other without any central authority. Every client and server have a cryptographic key pair and use public key for authentication. All traffic is encrypted using strong algorithms with mandatory perfect forward secrecy.

Key features

  • Cross platform - written in pure ISO C++17 + Filesystem TS (+ #pragma once).
  • Free software - released under the terms of GNU AGPLv3 or any later version.


Compiler support

  • G++ 7 or newer with libstdc++
