yojimbo is a network library for client/server games written in C++.

It's designed around the networking requirements of competitive multiplayer games like first person shooters.

It has the following features:

  • Cryptographically secure authentication via connect tokens
  • Client/server connection management and timeouts
  • Encrypted and signed packets sent over UDP
  • Packet fragmentation and reassembly
  • Reliable-ordered messages and data blocks
  • Estimates of packet loss, latency and bandwidth usage

yojimbo is stable and production ready.
