The Internet Robustness project is developing, testing, and piloting software and protocols to safeguard the promise of the URL, or "Uniform Resource Locator": that information placed online can remain there, even amidst network or endpoint disruptions. This project is designed to improve the resiliency and robustness of the web in a wide variety of Internet contexts around the world, offering an alternative route to web content in the event of intentional third-party blocking, hacking or denial of service attacks, or unintentional hosting or server failures. We aspire to a more robust and stable open web.

Our software allows operators of web servers and websites to mirror Internet content through web links. By automatically storing a mirror of every page linked to on a website, it provides visitors to the website recourse if links go dead. These mirrors are stored safely in the local storage space of the website or server. If one of the pages linked to on this website were to ever go down, the software has stored and can provide visitors with access to a mirrored version.
