PEp -- pretty Easy privacy
|Description||p≡p stands for pretty Easy privacy: p≡p wants to radically ease the use of well-known and established end-to-end cryptographic tools for already existing and widely used written digital communication channels (like e-mail, SMS or chat). Ultimately, p≡p wants to change the default in written digital communications: from unencrypted, unverified and unanonymized to encrypted, verified and anonymized.|

What is p≡p?
p≡p stands for pretty Easy privacy: p≡p wants to radically ease the use of well-known and established end-to-end cryptographic tools for already existing and widely-used written digital communication channels (like e-mail, SMS or chat). Ultimately, p≡p wants to change the default in written digital communications: from unencrypted, unverified and unanonymized to encrypted, verified and anonymized.
p≡p's protocols automate the steps taught to users at CryptoPartys to protect personal security and privacy by default. Thus, we will be able to provide protection on a state of the art expert encryption level for everyone regardless of their technical knowledge or expertise and for a substantial portion of their communication needs.
p≡p has a massive cross-platform approach, supporting multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Linux, BSD, MacOS, Windows etc.) and already supports multiple programming languages, will support multiple crypto technologies and be able to deal with multiple message transports as well as devices. p≡p, by concept, is 100% peer-to-per, end-to-end and provides device-based synchronization of keys and configurations (later also cloudless synchronization of contact and calendar data). 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 Free Software available for the general public under the GNU General Public License v3. All p≡p software will be subject to independent code audits (p≡p engine v0.8.0 having been reviewed already).
p≡p on the community side is organized as (1) p≡p foundation, a non-profit organization that owns the p≡p engine and supports Free and Open Source Software and Privacy by Default; and (2) p≡p security, an enterprise to distribute p≡p applications and respective services to specific markets (B2B and B2C).
