Zentameshnet is the secret and critical part to allow Zentalk users to communicate offline to offline. Running a Zentanode will support the nodes in the Zentameshnet and the node owners will be rewarded with Zenta tokens. Zentameshnet is a network topology in which each node relays data for the network. Zentachain implements .cjdns- nodes an encrypted IPv6 network using public-key cryptography for address allocation and a distributed hash table for routing. Zero configuration solves many security and scalability issues that plague existing networks.
All Zentanodes cooperate in the distribution of data in the Zentanetwork and each device using Zentalk acts as a node in the Zentameshnet. These nodes have the unique ability to interconnect with each other in a distributed fashion. In the Zentameshnet, each Zentanode is connected to one or more Zentanode. When a message or any data is sent from Zentalk through the Zentameshnet, it passes from one Zentanode to another one until the message has reached the desired recipient. Thanks to the design of the nodes in the Zentameshnet, we do not know which node sends or receives which message. This remains anonymous for the communication between the sender and the recipient.
Zentameshnet relay messages using either a flooding technique or a routing technique. With routing, the message moves along the road, jumping from one Zentanode to another until it reaches its destination. To ensure the availability of all routes, the network allows continuous connections using self-healing algorithms, such as Shortest Path Bridging, and corrupted or defective routers reconfigure themselves. Self-healing allows a routing-based network to operate when a Zentanode breaks down or when a connection becomes unreliable. As a result, Zentanetwork is reliable, as there is often more than one path between a source and a destination in the Zentameshnet.
