cryptica

Currently, this is code for experimenting with different architectures for a client-side encryption collaboration platform.

JavaScript client/UI model

UI and client-side crypto are implemented in JavaScript. To address the trusted client issue, JavaScript is not served by the same server storing the pre-encrypted data. This application is deployed via a static file, either loaded directly (file://) or served from a static file server running on localhost.

Issues:

JavaScript UI/client service model

UI is implemented in JavaScript and run in a browser. A client "service" is a localhost web server that serves the UI and also provides crypto services (implemented in OpenSSL). The client service will provide additional services including cert storage for cert-based authentication, indexing (pre-encryption), and caching. The client uses a custom CA to authenticate the server.

Issues:

  • Portability. Need to run a non-trivial web server on each target platform ( which includes mobile).
