Modernise the network stack of GNUnet

GNUnet-CONG is an intermediate abstraction layer for decentralized network stacks. The goal of this project is to create a common abstraction for the gnunet layer-2-overlay and libp2p, which can be used by higher level services of GNunet (DHT, CADET and others). In addition to the abstraction GNUnet-CONG adds E2E encryption and protocol versioning for protocols on higher layers. With wrapping these functionalities in a nice abstraction, CONG offers a usable secure protocol/service that enables a controlled way to deal with developmental progress on higher layers. In addition to integrating the latest changes to the layer-2-overlay of GNUnet with its other parts, this project is a step towards interoperability and collaboration between projects for a decentralized internet on a technical as well as on a organisational level.
