Tech activists unveil Veilid

Cult of the Dead Cow, a group of technology activists known for spreading hacking tools and pressuring software corporations to improve security, has revealed intentions to build an end-to-end encrypted protocol for app development known as Veilid

App developers may now implement strong encryption while foregoing money from targeted advertising based on user data thanks to the introduction of Veilid, a coding framework. Veilid uses end-to-end encryption to enable safe information flow across applications, making it harder for governments to intercept data.

Veilid secures material via end-to-end encryption, making it harder for governments or other organisations to intercept messages. Veilid is also designed to provide as a basis for non-data harvesting chat, file sharing, and social networking apps. In contrast to standard applications that collect comprehensive user data for targeted advertising.

Veilid guarantees that material is entirely encrypted and that no personal data is stored. It runs on a decentralized peer-to-peer network in which users exchange data with one another rather than downloading from a central server.

Veilid is described as “an open-source, peer-to-peer, mobile-first networked application framework, with a flagship secure messaging application named VeilidChat.” This type of application framework is a flexible software package that can be iterated on and updated by injecting new code into it.

The unveiling of Veilid will take place at the highly anticipated annual Def Con hacking conference in Las Vegas.
