May 20, 2015— Community Cube is a plug-and-play, open-source, small server specially designed to build a cooperative and fair internet that protects the user’s privacy. It is both a server and a free secure services that provides an all-to-one model that allows users to use the internet without the risk of being spied on by the government, corporations, hackers, and malware.
Jonay Sanz, a specialist in free software, network traffic forensics, intrusion, leakage and Linux kernel optimization, has created Community Cube and has turned to crowdfunding to raise €50,000 in order to develop the prototype, test it, continue any modifications, conduct beta testing, conduct quality assurance and finally launch their server.
According to Sanz, the internet today is full of “free” services, wherein the companies actually use their as their products in order to monopolize information and monetize from it. He adds, “When all your personal data belongs to them, bypassing your rights with their term and conditions. They represent the opposite of what we want to be with openness, transparency, respect to the product’s owner.”
Community Cube was created to integrate decentralized and collaborative open source tools that will focus on internet user’s privacy while ensuring that their data is resilient in any situation. “It offers independence from any Internet authority, corporation or government agency while educating users about data security, privacy and data disaster survival,” says Sanz.
This server system is built on open-source hardware, and it is operating on free and open-source software, Cage OS, using boards from Hardkernel, which is also 99% open, and can run on any Linux-based operating system. Its decentralized system provides absolute control, total privacy, and obscurity, allowing users to reach their data wherever they are and even on the go.
“With Community Cube, you create a quarantine zone, a sub-network that adds an additional layer of security area that is isolated from insecure areas, as the Internet cloud is,” says Sanz. In this decentralized system, the information is encrypted three times. He further explains it, “The decentralized (i2p) version of Tahoe LAFS-Grid (with protections against Sybil attacks and upload Dodos) is a new way to make your data indestructible. A grid splits your files up into little pieces, encrypts them and spreads them out geographically, making it immune to any disaster or outages.”
This allows people to have more and better control in sharing their private and personal information, synchronize shared content, and collaborate tools automatically. If the Community Cube is destroyed or stolen, users can simply buy a replacement cube server and recover lost data automatically from the Grid.
In return for the community’s support, backers will be able to freely download Cage Operating System, receive Cage IS in micro-SD class10 flash USB, Odroid XU3, Lite USB Universal Portability Pack Battery Uninterrupted Power Supply, Community Cube small version, Community Cube early bird access, metal Community Cube server, black-brushed metal Community Cube, and Golden Community Cube.
