### The Basics
The term *Garlic Routing* has a diverse history of varying interpretations.
The term *@garlic-routing* has a diverse history of varying interpretations. As it currently stands, Monero defines *@garlic-routing* as the method in which @Kovri and @I2P create a @message-based anonymous overlay network of internet peers.
As it currently stands, Monero defines *Garlic Routing* as the method in which @Kovri and @I2P create a @message-based anonymous overlay network of internet peers. The @layered-encryption of Garlic Routing is similar to the @layered-encryption of [Onion Routing](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onion_routing).
The @Garlic-Encryption of @Garlic-Routing is similar to the @Layered-Encryption of [Onion Routing](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onion_routing) and effectively conceals the IP address of the sender and secures information sent from the sender to its @destination (and vice-versa).
### History
In written form, the term *Garlic Routing* can be seen as early as June of 2000 in Roger Dingledine's [Free Haven Master's thesis](http://www.freehaven.net/papers.html) (Section 8.1.1) as derived from the term Onion Routing.

In technical terms, for @Kovri and @I2P, *@garlic-routing* translates to any/all of the following:
- @Layered-Encryption (like Onion Routing)
- @Layered-Encryption (similar to the @layered-encryption in Onion Routing)
- Bundling multiple @messages together (garlic cloves)
- ElGamal/AES @encryption
Note: though [Tor](https://torproject.org/) uses layered @encryption, Tor does not use ElGamal and is not message-based.
