p≡p ≡ pretty Easy privacy: making privacy the default for everyone
p≡p stands for pretty Easy privacy: We are easing the use of well-known and established end-to-end cryptographic tools for already existing and widely used written digital communication. Ultimately, p≡p wants to change the default: from unencrypted, unverified and unanonymized to encrypted, verified and anonymized.
p≡p's protocols automate the steps taught to users at cryptoparties. Thus, we are able to provide protection for everyone regardless of their technical knowledge or expertise for a substantial portion of their communication needs. Our mission: With p≡p we automate all the steps to protect your personal security and privacy by default. p≡p supports multiple platforms,multiple languages, multiple crypto technologies and multiple message transports. We offer a 100% Peer-to-Peer, End-to-End and device based secure synchronization of keys and configuration that is cheaper, faster, easier and better than any existing solution. Development wise we provide very simple APIs to allow for easy integration of p≡p into application programming. All software published by p≡p foundation is and shall forever remain open source as well as freely available for the general public. All our software is and will be subject to an independent codereview. In summary p≡p innovates on multiple fronts to change the defaults: It Makes Digital Privacy Easy – and empowers the user to have Privacy on an Free and Open Source basis.
