NetSepio aims to provide a safe and secure internet browsing experience through Data Democratization to empower individuals & companies to use the data in their decision making.
Our Mission is to create a tools like Browser Extensions and Mobile Apps to give users insights on the safe and harmful websites/domains they browse and allow them to categorize them into different categories as Safe, Spyware, Malware, Phishing etc. This enables them to safeguard against emerging advanced threats in a collaborative way with a decentralized and tamperproof process using blockchain technology.
What it Does
NetSepio browser extension allows users to vote for a website/domain categorizing it into various categories and get rewards. The user can be aware of the threats like Tracking, Malware, Drive-By Downloads, Adware, Phishing, Cryptojacking, etc. and also can report the website for having unsafe content. The report/voting process happens over a Blockchain based Smart Contract which gives rewards to users for every vote submitted. This enables users to pre-emptively protect their online activities from advanced threats in a collaborative way with a decentralized and tamperproof process using blockchain technology. We aim to create a security & privacy focused framework for online activities & Pseudo-anonymous Reputation based systems for online interactions.
Challenges we ran into
Integrating the Smart Contract functions to the Browser Extension seemed difficult so created python APIs to interact with the blockchain making the user experience smooth and easy.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating a Web3 enabled project which relies on a collaborative voting system with a decentralized and tamperproof process using blockchain technology.
