Why You Can Trust Our Tech

 

Zero Trust That You Can Trust

There are a lot of companies out there advertising their security and privacy offerings. While we believe they are well-meaning, at the end of the day, they can still see your data–even if they pinky promise not to look at it.

So, why should you trust Atsign? Why is Atsign different from these other companies? Simply put, we can never–EVER–see your data!

What We Are About

Atsign’s award-winning technology is built using Networking 2.0 principles. Here are some important facets of our tech:

Open Source

  • Anyone can view the source code and scrutinize, verify our claims, and even help improve the code. 

De-centralized and Peer-to-Peer

  • Our tech does not rely on transmitting data through a centralized server; all information exchange is peer-to-peer, directly to the recipient’s private server, with no third-party snooping possible.

Cryptographically Secure

  • Uses the boring, tried and true, industry-standard encryption technologies we know and love.

Zero Trust

  • Devices cut their own cryptographic keys right on the edge. Only the owner of the device and the intended recipient can ever see the data exchanged between them.

Testing the Tech

Crucially, we believe in rigorously testing our technology, not only in-house, but also from external and reputable organizations. Read more about how our technology (specifically, SSH No Ports) stood up to pen testing.

How secure is our code? We invite you to take a look. We have been using OpenSSF scorecards on all our key code repositories, and our scores are available for everyone to see. We take pride in our scores, and you will notice that our repositories rank among the best out there.

Here is a summary of our OpenSSF scores:
