How would you describe Veiled? In the late 1990s and early 2000s the peer-to-peer technologies started coming out to help people exchange ideas without having to worry about who is watching them and essentially help people exchange stuff without fear of repercussion. Our darknet, Veiled, allows us to emulate a lot of the properties of both Freenet and Gnutella just within the Web browser. The browser has become a ubiquitous platform...
What kind of interesting applications can you put on top of Veiled?
There are a lot of uses. Think about a suggestion box. You don't want someone logging who made certain suggestions. Another simple use case is just an anonymous forum that only exists in the darknet. You can communicate between a whole bunch of people inside the darknet and you could make it look like a typical Internet forum. Doesn't this have the potential to be abused by cybercriminals?
Whether you are a good guy or a bad guy, it's really important to maintain your privacy. As soon as you put something on the net, it has the potential to be out there forever. Whether people's intentions are good or bad that's not really for us to decide. We really want to put this technology out there and see what people can do with it and let people leverage it and let them make really good applications that work on top of the darknet. What are the limitations of Veiled?
