Field Documentation

◆ sig

struct GNUNET_CRYPTO_EddsaSignature GNUNET_DHT_PathElement::sig

◆ pred

struct GNUNET_PeerIdentity GNUNET_DHT_PathElement::pred

Previous peer on the path (matches "pred" in the signed field).

The public key used to create the sig is in the next path element, or is the sender of the message if this was the last path element.

The "succ" field can be found in 'pred' if there are two more path elements in the path, is the sender if there is only one more path element, or the recipient if this was the last element on the path.
