- Matt Wood: Veiled: A Browser-based Darknet
The September webcast will focus on Privacy/Anonymity featuring Matt Wood's work on Veiled: a browser-based darknet project. 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.
Veiled is a proof of concept that allows anyone to join from any platform which has a web browser whether it be it a PC or an iPhone. This presentation will discuss and demonstrate the Veiled darnket and look at the technical implementation and challenges of such features, we also explore some interesting properties of browser-based darknets.About the Presenter:
