About this project

 

Cryptostripe is a data management tool designed by privacy advocates to give individual users peace of mind storing data. Our software allows users to connect with different cloud providers and stripe their data across multiple servers. This ensures data will not to be jeopardized if a server has a breach of security. 

How it works

Cryptostripe's algorithm works to split your files into multiple indecipherable pieces that can only be restored through the use of our system. Cryptostripe also allows for free cloud storage limits to be maximized, by splitting the data and storing it across multiple storage servers we are giving you the ability to store more with only a portion of your data saved on any given cloud server the storage limits can be summed together to get your real storage capacity. 

By separating the uploaded data into multiple segments users will be able to upload data safely and securely onto their favorite cloud storages without the risk of any third party intrusions.

We at strive to be the leading provider in consumer based data encryption and security. Working with some of the most well known data cloud storage services Cryptostripe adds the extra layer of security for our users to protect any data they choose to upload. 

Why are we building it?

More than anything we wish to provide our users with the safety and peace of mind they desire by protecting their personal information and data from prying eyes around the world.

As we move forward more and more of our lives and personal information become digitized, the convenience of putting all of our information into the hands of companies on “the cloud” is training us to casually sacrifice our privacy and fragment our online identities.

Not long ago in 2012 one of the most notable cloud storage breaches took place involving the popular storage site Dropbox. This story along with many others that have take place since have all motivated our team to create a safer environment to store data on these cloud storage sites. Very recently we also learned that the number of people affected by the hack in 2012 was much larger than Dropbox either thought or than what they wanted us all to know. Whether Dropbox knew or whether they decided that everyone didn’t deserve full disclosure their users lost that feeling of safety and security and were put at risk.

Even more recently consumers have learned of the massive data breach on the popular website Yahoo. This sort of intrusion into privacy is becoming a much more common issue that has the potential to cause harm to many.

In order to restore that feeling of security we at Cryptostripe want to put an end to our users lack of privacy. After the countless data breaches and government data seizures we decided that consumers needed a way to store their data knowing 100% that they would be the only ones with access to it, and so we set out to build just that.

Our progress so far

Recently we have improved our website to add more user interface and become much more visually appealing. While it has improved we still continue to work everyday on ways to make it better. 

With our program being functional and linked to three cloud storages we are currently in a limited Alpha stage of testing working on getting rid of any bugs and potential security threats. We are also working with white hat hackers in order to find more security vulnerabilities in our system. We intend on having a public beta for all of our backers ready by November 2016 and use the input of our beta testers to make the site more user friendly, add new features, and become even more secure.

What will the funds be used for?

The money that you have pledged (which we are so very thankful for) will help to bring our idea of secure cloud storage to life. We have the ideas and ability to bring this product to the people, what we really need is the time to accomplish our goal. Your pledges will give us the ability to put in much more time into fulfilling our promise. 

Along with giving us more time to work on Cryptostripe your funds will go towards basic costs that are required to run and maintain our servers and website. They will also be used to further progress our security through the hiring of security experts in order to analyze any and all weaknesses and further build the program out of Alpha stage.

Lastly these pledges will go towards overhauling our website both in user interface as well as optimization. Currently we have done most of the coding for both the website and application, with your help we hope to bring on one or two more excellent programmers to further excel our goals.

Risks and challenges

When developing something completely new, unforeseen circumstances do tend to arise. Yet, we are confident that we have made all preparations to follow-up on the promises we’ve made on our campaign page. With a working program and website developed and testing successfully, we feel we are ready to enter our Alpha stage. To facilitate our users, we are currently simplifying the design and working on our interface. The designs of the different rewards offered for our pledges have yet to be decided, but we will share with our backers as soon as it is confirmed. Should we come across any deviations in our schedule we will be sure to inform you promptly so that you can follow along with our development!
