Abstract
To meet the unique messaging, data-sharing and transaction processing needs of DARPA and ultimately other parts of DoD, the Wickr solution will leverage our proven encryption technology to develop a scalable, decentralized messaging and transaction solution that will support DARPA's and DoD's needs in a number of environments and platforms. At a minimum, the solution to DARPAs messaging and data sharing requirements will include the following properties: Strong Message Secrecy (Group Conversations and 1:1) Complete Message Integrity and Non-repudiation Ability to Work in Hostile Environments, Disconnected from any Central Authority. Highly Scalable and Able to Work on Many Platforms Extensible communications protocol capable of scaling to any needs In the process, Wickr will examine several types of supporting technology to support DARPA's and DoD's unique business needs to include blockchain and other scalable, distributed ledger solutions.To meet the unique messaging, data-sharing and transaction processing needs of DARPA and ultimately other parts of DoD, the Wickr solution will leverage our proven encryption technology to develop a scalable, decentralized messaging and transaction solution that will support DARPA's and DoD's needs in a number of environments and platforms.
