WebRTC technology is rather new (spearheaded by Google in 2012 through the World Wide Web Consortium). It is a free project that provides browsers with Real-Time Communications. The technology is now widely used in live help customer support solutions, webinar platforms, chat rooms for dating, etc. But there are too little solutions for enhanced safety. It's weird. Since this technology offers great opportunities in this field.
WebRTC opens great opportunities in secure communications online
In the case of WebRTC technology to create a communication channel between subscribers is used Peer to Peer method. At the same time, there is no data transfer to any server. It is a great advantage. This ensures the confidentiality of transmitted information.
The majority of modern communication services works through central server. It means that all history is stored on the server and third parties can get access to them.
Using WebRTC technology security provider Privatoria.net developed a solution for confidential communication online in 2013. The main difference is the absence of data transfer to the server. Only the subscribers’ web browsers are used.
Chat service provides users with an opportunity to exchange messages by establishing a direct connection between their browsers and uses Peer to Peer method to communicate online.
To create a communication channel between subscribers it is enough to get a one-time key, and pass it to the called subscriber by any means of communication available. When the communication session is over, the history is deleted and the browser is closed, all correspondence between the subscribers disappears from the system.
In such case, no one can gain access to the content of communications.
A user will benefit from:
- Secure text messaging
- Secure Voice Call
- Secure Video Call
- Secure Data Transfer
As WebRTC supports not all browsers, Secure Chat solutions works only in Google Chrome, Opera and Mozilla. At now developers are working on an application for Android.
Therefore, it is good chance for all us today to communicate securely online.
