Decentralized and encrypted audio/video/text communication software building on SIP
Secure and decentralised voice/video/text communication client which also aims to be easy to use for non-technical people. Uses a distributed hash table (DHT) to retrieve a peers IP address based on a 40 character "ring id" which has to be exchanged between peers through other channels. Sharing via QRcode is built in to most of the current clients. When a peer's IP address is known an encrypted SRTP channel is opened between the peers and a standard SIP session is started on top of the SRTP connection.
Clients are available for GNU/Linux (gnome), Windows, Mac OSX & Android.
