Billy Hoffman & Matt Wood: Veiled - A Browser Based Darknet

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The concept of a darknet has been around for several years now: a hidden underground where people anonymously and securely communicate and share files with each other. Various projects like Tor, FreeNet, WASTE, decentralized peer to peer networks, and other services attempt to provide people with some of these properties. Regardless of how people use darknets, the concept of a private secure network where people can freely communicate ideas as well as distribute content is compelling from both a technological and a philosophical perspective. Unfortunately, the reality is not as clean as the idea. Darknets traditionally require various software programs or components to be installed and configured. This is not for the technically faint of heart. This and other barriers of entry limit those who can participate in a darknet.
In this talk we will discuss and demonstrate Veiled, a proof-of-concept browser-based darknet. A browser-based darknet allows anyone to join from any platform which has a web browser whether it be it a PC or an iPhone. Veiled embodies many of the traditional properties of a darknet. Users can communicate with each other through encrypted channels. Shared files are encrypted, fragmented, and redundantly stored locally across members of Veiled. Another feature, inspired by Ross Anderson"
