One-way broadcasting communications

Sometimes you have got high-bandwidth but unidirectional link, for example, satellite’s broadcasting signal. You are not able to use online synchronization protocol because it requires mutual interaction.

You can use bundles and stream them above. They are just a sequence of encrypted packets you can catch on.

$ nncp-bundle -tx alice bob eve … | command to send broadcast
$ command to receive broadcast | nncp-bundle -rx

With built-in packet duplicates detection ability, you can retransmit your broadcasts from time to time, to increase chances the recipient will catch them by regular stream listening.
