Everyday we use browser to surf web. However, we are at the risk of exposing our valuable data. This is an important issue as this could be used against the person.
What it does
Our concept relies on encryption to make the data which is exposed is not readable without the use of special app and the key known by the user.
How we built it
Chrome is a popular choice when it comes to browsing. Chrome extension was used to encrypt data either as AES encrypted message or QR code containing encrypted message. The app will scan this and send to an OCR processing which will turn it into text and can be decrypted using the key specified in the app.
Challenges we ran into
Throught the hackathon
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Made a extension to encrypt page content into individual encryptions that can be decrypted using app. Made an app relying on OCR to gather text and decrypt the cipher using key.
What we learned
Using OCR technology, building chrome extension, encryption-decrytion using AES, QR code
What's next for CipherOn
Using QR code to gather data.
