Can you explain how end-to-end encryption works here?
I took a lot of time to read about state of the art End-To-End Encryption. I read Apple Security White Paper about iMessage E2E encryption feature. I read Dashlane White paper, read and talked with Insomnia Founder, and read about ProtonMail implementation of the Remote Secure Password protocol. The Gladys Gateway encrypts all your messages using AES-GCM 256bits algorithm and a unique key generated at each message. This key is then encrypted using RSA-OAEP 2048bits algorithm and the public key of your Gladys instance. Finally, the message is signed with the ECDSA P-256 Algorithm and bundled with an expiry date to avoid Replay Attack. On Gladys side, the user has to validate each new user public key to avoid Man In The Middle attack. With those securities, even if the Gladys Gateway is compromised, the attacker cannot control your Gladys instance because he doesn't have your private key.
Why is Gladys Plus not free?
Gladys and all its services, including this website: everything is 100% open-source and free to use. But open-source doesn't mean that I don't have any recurring costs on my side: servers, domains, community, email services, subscriptions, hardwares... Without counting my time on the project now that Gladys is my main activity. This project respects your privacy, and therefore can live only from theses contributions. Each subscription helps me make the project even better, and prove the world that a privacy-first and open-source alternative is possible! 🚀
Are you developing more features for Gladys and Gladys Plus?
Of course! The more contributors there are on this package, the more I'm able to invest on Gladys. For example, I paid a professional designer to work on the brand identity of Gladys. We all agree that the work he did is incredible, and it's only thanks to contributions that I was able to pay this designer. In fact, Gladys it's a little bit like a decentralized company, where the boss, it's you! Thanks to this business model, all decisions are made in order to favorize users, not investor or advertisers.
