Note: this program is in the early stages of development, an alpha-phase release.

The Alpine Network is a peer-based application and network infrastructure designed for distributed resouce location, including file/data transfer. Alpine attempts to improve on the distributed search/sharing problem using an efficient messaging system and social discovery.

Alpine uses an adaptive social discovery mechanism to improve the accuracy and quality of resources provided by other peers in the network. This mechanism is designed to be flexible so that arbitrary types of resources can benefit from the social tuning/culling of peer groups.

The messaging protocol used is called DTCP, a lightweight logical transport for reliable/unreliable datagram communication.
