This campaign will produce Strongbox (www.strongbox.io) apps for Android, Windows 10 Universal, iOS and OS X, as well as backend service upgrades to support these apps.
Strongbox does not store your encryption keys anywhere in any form, and un-encrypted content never leaves your device, in fact it only exists in memory while the app is running.
Strongbox needs this to continue on as a viable service. Without apps user growth is stunted. Without enough users the service can't sustain itself. The apps are the necessary stepping stone.
Once these essential apps are completed, development will focus on adding item level sharing. This way a single item in a box (a password or credit card number) not only the entire box can be securely shared with individuals. This will remove the need to manage many boxes, often with duplicate content, instead we will have the option of 'virtual boxes'. Also the use of public key cryptography in some scenarios, will remove the need to track separate pass phases for each box.
Further down the road, (since this isn't central to Strongbox as our security goals differ from our competitors) browser extensions will be built, allowing for the familiar 'password and form fill functionality with sync across browsers. This won't affect security as a separate box in a different security zone with less sensitive data will be used.
Regarding the rewards part of this Kickstarter campaign, personal use vs business use will largely differ in the number of boxes allowed or number of users one can share with, for business use these will be essentially unlimited.
Let's do it!
Risks and challenges
The challenge will be to find capable people to work with to build tailored apps on each platform. Apps that offer great usability and flow, are secure and delivered on time. With many years in software industry under our belt, we're confident we can find the right people.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
