Hello ICNRG,

I'd like to request feedback and comments on a proposal I have 
working on: Encoding for Robust Immutable Storage (ERIS)

ERIS defines how an arbirtary sequence of bytes can be encoded 
into a
set of uniformly sized, encrypted and content-addressed blocks, 
that the original content can only be decoded given a short 
This is done by splitting content into blocks and building a 

Encodings like ERIS are common in protocols such as BitTorrent, 
GNUNet, et. al. The goal of ERIS is to define an encoding that is
independant of underlying storage and transport layer - make 
referencable regardles of how it is stored or transported.

This work has been very much inspired by ideas from the ICN 
and I hope to eventually use NFD for transporting blocks of ERIS 

I'd be very happy for your comments and thoughts.

Best regards,
