Using the Blockchain for More Secure and Private Communication
A quick glance at the most recent online or printed articles is sufficient to see the amplitude all subjects connected to the Blockchain have reached. Among others, the ones that are centered around privacy topic are gaining more and more interest. According to an article published a year ago on the Scientific American website, Blockchain manages to enhance privacy, to improve security and conveyance of data. Moreover, this decentralized digital infrastructure is considered one of the most powerful tools to help harden systems.
What is in fact Blockchain and how can it be best defined and described?
In a way, the Blockchain is very similar to the Internet (the virtual world we all know, love and so frequently use) — thus, the Blockchain is a worldwide, open infrastructure that permits building other applications and technologies on top of it. And similar to the world wide web, it gives people the opportunity to bypass traditional intermediaries in their dealings with each other — by doing so, it eliminates or lowers transaction costs. For most of us, the Blockchain is only associated to monetary transactions, such as cryptocurrency — and even though this fact is partially true (Blockchain being the technology behind the bitcoin digital currency), this network has more than what meets the eye. Being a decentralized system it operates transactions that no one person or company owns or controls — this is why every user connected to it can access it as a whole, and all operations are done in a secure and verifiable form. For this, it uses techniques initially developed in cryptography. And with copies of the blockchain across the entire planet, it is today seen as being tamper-proof.
Numerous companies are already starting to use this potential in order to confront the actual security and privacy problems that continue to torture the Internet communication and commerce (because Blockchain is fully verifiable by the public).
All these amazing characteristic features of the blockchain have been finally put to good use to provide a unique network, based on its smart contracts.
Meet FortKnoxster — a new and innovative project that provides users across the globe with various communications solutions within one web and one mobile platform. FortKnoxster has managed to use the maximum of resources provided by the Ethereum Blockchain technology (with the use of smart contracts), to create private and trusted communication channels between all types of users. By doing so, FortKnoxster can now successfully provide end-to-end encrypted inbox, chat, decentralized storage, calling, video conferencing, voice messages, etc.
FortKnoxster is based on this distributed trust model — the blockchain technology empowers users to control their own digital identity and share and communicate between with trust. Thus, the user’s’ digital identity cannot be attacked and nothing can fail. Moreover, on top of the implementation of a secure and decentralized trust model of FortKnoxster’s encrypted digital identities (the public keys), the project also creates a complete ecosystem based on the FKX token and smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain — this will help facilitate secure transactions of subscription services and incentives to participants.
