KRYPTOX is a new encrypted cloud storage and file sharing application different from all the other services out there. Digital storage has moved from good old floppy disks, CDs, DVDs, magnetic hard disks to cloud storage. There are lot of players out there offering cloud based file storage services. Some of the big names in cloud based storage systems include Google (with their Google Drive), Microsoft (OneDrive), Apple (iCloud), Dropbox, Box and others.

Using cloud storage services comes with its own advantages in terms of accessibility and flexibility when it comes to storage space requirement. On the downside, there are many security and privacy concerns associated with these services. There have been multiple instances where hackers have accessed files stored on these accounts, well-known being the iCloud celebrity leaks, popularly known as ‘Celebgate’ or ‘The Fappening’. There are also apprehensions about how these cloud storage services use consumer data and even files stored on their servers.
KRYPTOX will change that by revolutionizing the industry.
KRYPTOX is offering a solution that addresses all these concerns. The free and secure file sharing service is slated to offer encrypted storage using encrypted hash keys. KRYPTOX was founded by Leon Tiger. Keybase started offering encrypted messaging services before branching out to encrypted storage and file sharing services. Currently in its alpha stage, KRYPTOX offers 10 GB free space for users. Users can create two kinds of folders to store files – public and private servers. The cryptographically secure file mount allows users to create public signed directories on KRYPTOX application at the location. All files stored inside this directory can be readily shared with anyone. Similarly, the private files can be stored in a directory. KRYPTOX generates cryptographic public keys for user files which are stored on the KRYPTOX network.
The files saved on KRYPTOX are automatically signed and anyone accessing the shared files will see them as text files (except for images). The static content shared on a public folder can be accessed by anyone. However, unlike public folders, private folders can be accessed by those with whom the file owner wants to share it with only after the user adds permissions to share that particular directory with a specific user. Sharing private files will require users to crate and populate a folder using the KRYPTOX infrastructure. Users can also share the files with people on social media platforms.
KRYPTOX does not sync all the files to shared devices, but works as an on-demand streaming service. Only when a file is requested, the application will pull it for the user (given he/she has required permissions). While the public files are not encrypted, private directories enjoy end to end encryption using NaCl device specific keys. The KRYPTOX servers do not save a copy of the user’s private key, which means, even the servers don’t have a way to peek into the content saved in private folders. Currently, one has to create a paper key for the Key associated with the user account. However, in near future the company will be coming up with application generated keys to automatize the KRYPTOXservice.
