To fulfill its objective of circumventing several kinds of network interference and shortages, CENO makes use of assorted techniques from the fields of the World Wide Web, file-sharing systems and advanced cryptography. These techniques are cleverly combined by Ouinet so as to make the experience of using CENO as close as possible to normal Web browsing.

Nonetheless, to get the most out of CENO it is helpful to understand how Ouinet operates, the different ways it can be used depending on the kind of content we are trying to access, and the advantages and risks that they entail. This chapter will cover these topics.
