FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hacktivismo Launches ScatterChat for Secure, Private Communication

CULT OF THE DEAD COW (cDc) subdivision releases user-friendly software to facilitate anonymous communication and secure file transfers

NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) July 21, 2006 – Hacktivismo, an international group of hackers, human rights workers, lawyers, and computer security experts announces the release of ScatterChat (www.scatterchat.com), a free, open source application designed to facilitate secure and private real-time communication over the Internet.   

ScatterChat is unique in that it is intended for non-technical human rights activists and political dissidents operating behind oppressive national firewalls.  It is an instant messaging client that provides end-to-end encryption over the Electronic Frontier Foundation-endorsed Tor network. Its security features include resiliency against partial compromise through perfect forward secrecy, immunity from replay attacks, and limited resistance to traffic analysis, all reinforced through a pro-actively secure design. 

According to lead developer J. Salvatore Testa II, “The anonymity and encryption that ScatterChat provides ensures that both the identities and messages of activists remain a mystery, even to well-funded totalitarian governments.”

Hacktivismo will be announcing the release of ScatterChat at the HOPE conference taking place July 21-23, at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York, NY.
