PeerStream has been building innovative consumer apps for 20 years, with its flagship video chat product, Paltalk. Now PeerStream is introducing Backchannel, a blockchain-enabled secure live video messaging app targeting prosumer, enterprise and government use cases. Released in private beta in December 2018, Backchannel uses blockchain technology to provide the foundation for decentralized security assuring only the users control their keys and communications. Backchannel is built on PeerStream Protocol (“PSP”), which adds an additional layer of security that anonymizes and protects the user’s identity along with their streamed data.
The Rivetz Network and Toolkit enable companies and platforms to build hardware-level security into their offerings. The easy-to-integrate solution offers state-of-the-art protection of the user’s identity and encryption keys. The technology is built on already embedded Global Platform standards.
“Our organizations share a common goal in the continued development of security- and privacy-oriented solutions covering a spectrum of applications. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the Rivetz team and leveraging their technology to extend and complement our own,” said Eric Sackowitz, PeerStream’s Chief Technology Officer.
“PeerStream provides a great solution for content sharing and messaging, showing how blockchain technologies can be put to work,” said Steven Sprague, CEO of Rivetz. “We are pleased to provide the mobile security that puts the user in control of their identity and their privacy, assuring safe and simple operations.”
