About the project
Project Name: End-to-End Encryption for /e/
This project will research and implement end-to-end encryption for the /e/ cloud, so that data migration and data sharing become more secure for our users.
Team: Rik Viergever, Gaël Duval, Romain Hunault and Alexis Noetinger
/e/ builds privacy-safe and open-source smartphone operating systems (OS) and provides related cloud storage and services. /e/ is the privacy-safe and open-source alternative to Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS. /e/ currently has >13000 active mobile users.
/e/ supports data portability and interoperability in any way it can: we make use of open-source technologies and open standards, so users can easily share data with other service providers and import and export their data to and from our cloud. For DAPSI, we will strengthen the encryption of the /e/ cloud, so that data migration and data sharing become more secure for our users.
Our cloud services provide our users the option to store personal data on /e/’s servers, to use these data with online services, to import and export the data to and from other providers, and to share the data with other service providers. We use open-source technologies and open standards as much as possible because this has various advantages for our users, in terms of data portability / migration, accessibility, and backup. For this project, we will research and implement end-to-end encryption for the /e/ cloud, so that our users will be able to share, migrate and store their data using the highest encryption standards.
