Sounds a lot like cjdns: https://github.com/cjdelisle/cjdns

Differences I see so far:

- cjdns has taken some time already to specify the routing protocol in much
more detail
- cjdns is IPv6 rather than IPv4
- cjdns makes the hash of the key into the IP address, whereas snow seems
to allow whatever IPv4 address
