A new, Irish-made way to keep push notifications safe from prying eyes. Kevin Abosch appears to be one of those old-fashioned polymaths, the kind that were possibly ubiquitous during the Renaissance era but are few and far between in 2015. When hes not photographing the Faces of Ireland for Dublin Airport or producing those Web Summit pictures everybody wants as their profiler, hes writing essays on Artificial Intelligence and co-founding Kwikdesk, a platform for the secure movement of data.
By dispensing with logins, passwords, cookies and IP tracking, Kwikdesk allowed users to send self-destructing messages completely anonymously, which could only be found and retrieved if the recipient knew which tag to look for.
Since then, Kwikdesk has produced OneOne, an app which allows untraceable text messaging. Now they’re back again with Cryptoshift, which addresses the issue of push notification privacy. Described as a ‘platform-as-a-service that powers secure push notifications’, Cryptoshift adds end-to-end encryption so that notifications remain for whom they are intended.
