Open source fights back against NSA & GCHQ mass surveillance

Press release from: GadgetNet LLC

We are a group of open source software developers and we have created an NSA-surveillance-proof application for journalists, civil rights activists, professionals, libertarians and all users who are concerned about their privacy and secure communication.

The software is called Streembit and the application website is at http://streembit.github.io. It is completely free to use and displays no advertisements on the user interface. No registration is required, in fact not even an email address is needed to use the software. Functionalities include decentralized, end-to-end encrypted peer-to-peer video and audio chat, and securely handling of Internet of Things devices. The software is fully open sourced and available for peer review so that researchers and cryptographers can verify that there are no backdoors present in the system. The application is a true peer to peer system and decentralised. This means that there's a notable absence of the usual centralized corporate data-mining the activity of the users. This also means the system cannot be the subject of law enforcement subpoenas. The application collects no data from users, therefore nothing can be surrendered to law enforcement.

We welcome users to download the software at http://streembit.github.io, review it and start using it. Software developers can join us to make the application better.

GadgetNet LLC is a software development start-up to create open source software for human and Internet of Things communication.
