Cutlass is a cross-platform system for secure peer to peer communication, oriented towards small groups
Cutlass is a cross-platform system for secure peer to peer communication, oriented towards small groups. It provides IM and file transfer. A major design goal is to be easy to use, even by non-security conscious users. The Cutlass main goals are :
Easy enough to use for broad adoption
Coded using widely supported APIs, to be multiplatform
Secure by default, using encrypted channels
Useful for everyday Internet functionality. Transmit sound, files, text.
P2P as independent of central servers/failure points as possible.
Extendable (both in functionality and paranoia)
Not dependent on central servers
Cutlass is currently under development. The current version provides message, file and voice transmission, but grouping, directory services and connection forwarding are not yet implemented.
Cutlass was originally named DEFJAM (Distributed, Encrypted File Journalling And Messaging), and was the subject of a presentation at Notacon.
Cutlass requires the Botan crypto library and the Speex voice codec to build. (Please use the stable branch of Speex, we've had segfaults with the unstable branch).
