Tresorit encryption end-to-end

Tresorit’s new idea, the Prevaat is a groundbreaking conception because it would encrypt data end-to-end. This means that not even the site operators could see anything of it, not to mention selling the information, as Facebook does. Tresorit started a public funding, as reports.

The big idea

Hungarian Tresorit, that deals with encrypted file sharing, would create a new encrypted social network. Their idea is based on Facebook‘s and Cambridge Analytica’s scandal because of whom 50 million people’s private data got shared with unauthorised personnel. The name of this new social network would be Prevaat.

Its main advantage would be that not even the site operators could have access to anyone’s data due to the encryption between users.

The problem with Facebook

The root of the problem with Facebook is not that it could not encrypt the data, it is that it does not want to do so. Their reason is that they are earning money from selling the users data.

Today, every Facebook users data is accessible for the site operators, not to mention various applications and other users.

According to Eszter Szilva, PR manager of Tresorit, the company wants to solve this problem with the help of technology instead of setting limitations. She also stated that accessibility of the users’ data for unauthorised personnel must be inhibited.

Encrypting end-to-end would be a solution for the situation.

Financial issues

To make their dream come true, they started an IndieGoGo campaign and their aim is to collect a million dollars to start programming the site. They had 2535 dollars from 83 backers as for 30/03/2018.

First, it would be free for anyone to join the site until there is a good amount of users. After that, people would need to pay for the service. There would be also commercials after a while but only without sharing the users’ personal data, of course. Additionally, there would be an option to pay for getting rid of the commercials.

Views of Tresorit

According to Eszter, the problem does not lie in the commercials but the in the way Facebook handles them.

The system is not clear for most of the users, there is not any specific agreement to sign, and the microtargeting is too intensive. Facebook, as well as the advertisers, know too much about the users.

What is more, all of the information concentrates on one company who handles advertising.

Previous attempts

There had been many attempts to create user-friendlier social networks but none of these has succeeded yet. However, Tresorit stays optimistic because as far as they know, none of those used encrypting end-to-end. Tresorit’s advantage is that they have a six-year experience in encrypting, though. They are prepared for failure as well but besides backers, they are also discussing with potential investors. Tresorit is one of the tops in encrypting technology around the world. Its team began from BME (Budapest University of Technology and Economics). Márton Anka, the founder of Logmein, has recently joined them.

  1. Something off of the record but very serious abd dangerous:
    Easter 2018 – Pope Francis says he no longer believes in hell. While a large part of the world commemorates that Jesus Christ voluntarily gave His life almost 2,000 years ago so that mankind could be saved, a great controversy arose around the leader of Catholic Church, Pope Francis. In a personal conversation, he said that he no longer believed in hell while that concept was always part of the Catholic doctrine. In response to the commotion, the Vatican issued an official statement stating that the pope cannot be quoted because of the personal nature of the conversation, but in which his statements are nevertheless not directly denied.
    For what did Jesus actually die if there is no hell? many Christians, including former US-presidential candidate Patrick (‘Pat’) Buchanan, wonder. They see the position of the Pope Francis as betrayal of the Christian faith. Many see their opinion that the current Vatican leader is actually a false pope, an anti-pope, even been confirmed. The fuss arose after the Italian newspaper La Repubblica published a conversation between Francis and his atheist friend, the journalist Eugenio Scalfari. He had asked him ‘what happens to bad souls – where are they being punished?’ Francis’ reply would have been that bad souls would not be punished. Those who show no repentance and therefore cannot be forgiven and disappear. There is no hell, but a disappearance of sinful souls. Buchanan points to Judas, who betrayed Jesus to the Pharisees. Jesus told him that it would be better if he had never been born. Has the soul of Judas, and of the evil-nice monsters in history, simply disappeared? If there is no hell, is the greatest deterrence of our worst sins removed? Why did Christ, who died on the cross, save us? Is he really a pope? The conservative politician wonders with many other believers whether Francis is a copied pope. This is not only because of his supposed denial of hell, which goes directly against numerous statements and doctrines of ‘holy’ declared earlier popes, but also because of other deviations from traditional doctrine, such as allowing the communion of undisputed and remarried Catholics not confirmed by the Church, who officially live in adultery according to the Church. On the recurring theme of gay sexuality, Francis responded with ‘who am I to judge (about that)?’ Buchanan: But if you do not, then who does? Is the naming of good and evil not part of your job? In China, the Vatican approved the against Catholics and the Archbishop of Hong Kong, Zen Ze-kiun, wondered what would become of the Church now that it had been sacrificed to the Communists in Beijing. The Vatican has betrayed the church in China, meaning the underground church in the communist country that refuses to conform to a state-controlled church. Francis is also controversial because he is a great supporter of Islamic mass immigration to Europe and he is openly applauding the associated Islamization of our society and also wholeheartedly behind the pursuit of an EU Superstate, a ‘United States of America / Europe ‘, stands. It is not for nothing that he is called by some the religious leader of the globalist ‘New World Order’ (of Soros).
    Worldwide crack in catholic church. All over the world, various lower-level church leaders also took distance from the pope. Many Catholics see an ever-growing crack between the Vatican and the increasingly liberal Western Catholicism and traditional, conservative variants that are still widely adhered to in the Third World.
