When it emerged that government intelligence agencies might have cracked encryption keys in SIM cards distributed by Gemalto in February, according to documents released by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden served as a moment of truth to the lack of privacy when using current technology mobile phone communication devices.
Commenting in a statement about privacy levels for everyday voice and data communications,Ryan Seamus a mobile security and research developer, shared some important concerns were brought to light.
“The demand for a truly private smart phone has been increasing, people want to know that they can communicate freely with each other without having big brother listening in, or anyone they did not invite for that matter”, he said.
“The only way we can have true privacy is through a decentralised network, the blockchain that bitcoin runs on is a perfect example, same with Fast Flux hosting of content on the internet”
The Fast Flux hosting method has been used mainly by cyber criminals over the years to evade authorities by hosting the content of websites on a vast array of “bots” which are compromised computers located all over the world, each one hosting a few pieces of an entire website that end up merging together to deliver the complete content in your browser. Authorities are unable to trace
the exact location of where a website is hosted when using Fast Flux, since the ip address changes constantly when performing trace routes and dns lookups. The larger the network of compromised machines reflects the number of changes in geographical location and ip address of said website. Unlike the blockchain however, Fast Flux hosting always has a single controlling server
that all the infected machines report back to so their online presence can be managed, thus making the method not decentralized at the end point.
This has been the downfall when authorities have located the control servers of known Fast Flux hosting botnets and taken the control server offline, causing the entire network to black out.
The Blockchain can be seen as a global decentralized ledger of sorts and the entire underlying technology that is the backbone of the digital cryptocurrency we all know as bitcoin. The blockchain however is also the essential homebase and backbone of several other digital currencies and
information storage and distribution initiatives.
One of those alternative cryptocurrencies, XAI (Sapience AIFX), has gone beyond being a simple alternative to bitcoin and actively been developing a solution that can be used on smartphone’s in which the blockchain plays a very important part.
Coupled with a distributed artificial intelligence platform allowing for constant expansion and development.
Sapience AIFX, the first distributed artificial intelligence system running on an alternative coin network is the only innovative approach to date based on the blockchain that has successfully built modules that are collectively distributed throughout the peer-to-peer (p2p) sphere which focus on voice communication, thus reaching far beyond other current alternative development.
The ability to transfer voice communications in a ultra-secure manner using top level encryption along with voice packets being split and distributed in random order throughout the decentralized blockchain network between users that is the very backbone of bitcoin will revolutionize voice communications. The same applies to text-based messaging and multimedia messaging. In the same fashion that individuals currently send bitcoin to one another anywhere in the world
within a fraction of a second, doing so with voice communication is the obvious step forward.
With the Blockchain being called the “Next Generation of the Internet” and more innovation constantly on the horizon with technological solutions built on the blockchain itself, many eye brows are being raised by big brother government who have no way to control or manipulate this powerhouse that is and will always be decentralized while it grows larger and more complex daily.
True privacy without back doors that prying strangers can monitor our activities is becoming a reality and we welcome it with open arms!
