I wanted to know more about these. Which is the easiest? Most secure? free?

Freenet (http://freenetproject.org/)

GNUnet (http://gnunet.org/)

Entropy (http://entropy.stop1984.com/en/home.html)

Freenet and Entropy are censorship-resistant file shares. Freenet is probably more secure than Entropy because it's the focus of more development. Entropy is basically freenet in C, but compatible (for the most part) with Freenet.

GNUnet is new compared to both, and is a P2P/F2F app, not a file share. It hasn't been the subject of much testing or development, and I wouldn't consider it anywhere near as secure as Freenet.

All of them are free software. Gnunet is probably the easiest to set up, but is in beta and setting it up might not make it work. Freenet is probably the most worth it.

You might want to also look at Tor.
