Wildfire is an anonymous messaging app running on Android 4.0+ platform. It uses the adaptive diffusion spreading mechanism from (Fanti et al., Sigmetrics 2015) to provide users with strong anonymity guarantees. Currently an alpha version of Wildfire is available.
Disclaimer: This version of Wildfire does NOT currently provide full anonymity guarantees, and is intended as a proof-of-concept. It is run over Antox, a distributed, peer-to-peer messaging platform (www.github.com/astonex/Antox). This platform uses a DHT for namespace resolution, and we have no guarantees that this DHT is not compromised or monitored. In practice, this could compromise the anonymity guarantees provided by adaptive diffusion.
