SecureDebate is a simple academic project for showing how to create a secure multi-chat client-server application with PKI mutual authentication.
Give It a Try
It is very simple to run it locally using Maven:
- Start the server:
mvn exec:exec -Dserver
- Start one or more clients:
mvn exec:exec -Dclient
Please, remember that it is not intended to be an hyper-fancied and very-well architected distributed application :) so do not start a real-life distributed application moving from the strucure of SecureDebate.
Anyway, SecureDebate implements a simple communication protocol and a well-defined classical client-server architecture.
