"Kademlia" nodeID

Hi!

How is the “Kademlia” nodeID for the vault generated in the safe network? Like in bittorrent DHT? As a hash of the ip:port

Via a relocation system. so it generates a unique ID -> asks to join network, then is allocated another ID deterministically chosen form the group close to the generated ID. It’s more detailed in routing docs on github though http://docs.maidsafe.net/routing/master/routing/index.html
