So what exactly does Spot-On encryption software do?
Spot-On is software that securely connects two friends via a key exchange: friend-to-friend encrypted connections are established. This makes it an encryption app with several functions that are mapped per tab. The three most important functions are:
Communication. 1:1 chat, group chat, email, file sharing and file transfers with magnet links and P2P web search in one database.
Everything encrypted. It is therefore most comparable to RetroShare. But RetroShare only encrypts from friend to friend. Spot-On encrypts end-to-end end-to-end.
The network works cryptographically: The app is therefore comparable to Tor or I2P , even if you can't surf via it yet: the functions are currently just chat, communication and Filetransfer. There is also file sharing with a magnet URL and a website search function.
The cryptographic protocol used, called Echo, works in such a way that there is a specific routing to senders or the recipients in the network. Therefore it is “Beyond Routing” or even “Beyond Cryptographic Routing”. This is also interesting and innovative compared to TCP routing, onion routing, blockchain routing or I2P routing. It is therefore worth taking a closer look not only at the network technology, but also at the cryptographic level, as it is a comprehensive encryption software as a suite - for encryption of chat and email as well as web searches and file sharing.
In short: It is a chat app, a database search and a torrent-like file sharing app for download with magnet links. With F2F and E2F over multihops in the Echo, file sharing is in a new evolutionary stage and is securely defined.
