Internet Software Application Security

 
Software must be secure. Coders need to approach every job with security in front, and endevour to write unbreakable code, and server admins must configure and lock down web servers so nothing gets in or out other than that which we intend.
 
Developers and engineers working on internet software applications should be trying to hack and break their own systems all the time, to learn how to protect them. To this end there is little better than frequent testing by Approved Scanning Vendors recomended by the PCI-Security Standards Council.
 
Approved Scanning Vendors run scans on servers and web applications trying to break things and hack their way in, then they tell you what they accomplished, how they did it and suggest what you can do to fix it. Finally, with all known weaknesses exposed and secured, the application can claim to be certrified secure and PCI-DSS Compliant.
 
Just as we do everything possible to safeguard our users' privacy online, so must we all keep our computers and mobile devices secure. That is best achieved by using OEM operating systems (not cracked versions) and keeping up with updates, and not opening email attachments that you didn't expect to receive.
 
While any of your info is on acdit.com systems, only you can get at it. Additionally, we prefer to delete data when it's no longer needed by a server process, and give you the option store it on your own computer / device instead.

webRTC video conferencing privacy and security

 
Imagine a video chat + screen and file sharing system which is entirely private and secure and disappears leaving no trace when you're done ... that's what you get with webRTC (web Real Time Communication) technology. Learn about our webRTC solutions and understand its privacy and security advantages.
 
Forget email, if privacy is important. Forget Facebook, Twitter - forget all the popular social media platforms, if privacy s important. webRTC is the answer to our needs ...
 
webRTC is a P2P communications technology available now in all modern web browsers. P2P means peer-to-peer (in this case, device to device) data transfer which does not require a web server in between. Messages, video + audio streams and files can be sent directly from one device to another, encrypted under TLS protocol (formerly SSL), providing no opportunity for interception.
 
This is a huge win for privacy, and is eagerly supported by privacy and security advocates. There are several important implications here:
 
Given that the internet's organic function is to extend and expand the capabilities of everyone on the planet, and given that much information is tainted by others' agdendas, or is shrouded in dogma or questions of political correctness, it is more than ever important to have free and open channels to high quality information and to be able to discuss anything without restriction - at least in private.
 
But pressures on the right-to-privacy would deny the basic and natural principle that what we think or say belongs to us, and no-one else. We are all individually responsible, we can filter ourselves and we can choose to engage or disengage with others as we see fit.
 
webRTC provides secure communications channels which completely avoid data-mining messaging systems, right there in your web browser - no snooping app to download or install. The day the W3C, Google, Microsoft, Apple and Mozilla compromise webRTC privacy will be the last day of internet freedom, ever.
 
There's an excellent article on privacy matters on TeachPrivacy. My compliments to the authors.

Secure Communications Software by acdit.com

 
In the spirit of a free and open internet and the absolute right to privacy, acdit.com has used webRTC technology to create two video chat applications to provide secure and private internet communications for a variety of different purposes: Zybercall and CamChatCafé.
Zybercall is a professional-level secure zone where streams of encrypted data for video + audio, text and files are exchanged in total privacy, where no records are kept and where data is deleted the moment it's no longer needed. You have the option of storing chats on your own device. Zybercall presently offers free lifetime membership.
 
Cam Chat Café is for fun and networking through social interaction. It's a public place to hang out, webcam on or off, meeting and engaging with new people, to join in open discussions and go private whenever the need arises. Cam Chat Café is financed by advertising.
 

Software as a Service (SaaS)

 
Software as a Service is a business model in which applications run on webservers serving the needs of multiple users. SaaS enables software development companies to share their applications' development and running costs between serveral customers. acdit.com currently operates 3 SaaS solutions:
 
Zybercall encrypted messaging and video chat,
 
hoteliport hotel management software and
 
th-property real estate marketing consultancy.
 
Additionally, and just for fun, we also operate Cam Chat Café, an online meeting place where users can hangout, webcam off or on, meeting and interacting with everyone else in the community. We earn a bit from advertising on CamChatCafe.com, and we learn much which helps us constantly improve our expertise in webRTC online communication systems.
