Your data is safe from everything, including A.I.

StrongSalt video sharing app goes online in the iOS App Store on May 31, 2018.









Privacy matters

A future where everyone has complete control of their data begins with a secure, decentralized, highly scalable network.


StrongSalt Protocol builds an ever growing decentralized network of volunteers.


Helping out the network by volunteering bandwidth, storage capacity and computing resources.


StrongSalt tokens can be used for a number of network services provided by other nodes and the network itself.


We distrust the network operators and hosting companies including ourselves with your data.

Our Technologies

We only use modern and widespread cryptographic algorithms. As mathematics, quantum computers, and hardware advances, our cryptographic modules will be updated to reflect the latest best practice for strong security.

Multi-layered and multi-channel networking ensures scalability and high-performance suitable for modern 5G routing in a decentralized network while securing the network at each level of the protocol stack

Advanced QUIC (TLS + UDP) transport to enhance security and reduce latency of existing TCP-based protocols

Secure by default, low-overhead publish/subscribe network protocol highly suitable for decentralized IoT devices

Preserve privacy from everyone and everything using encryption and secure network protocols

Blockchain enhances security and preserves individual privacy in a world of smart devices and AI-powered bots

Overnest Searchable Encryption Platform allows you to encrypt everything and search anything on your data

Our Mission


We believe that everyone is born with certain unalienable rights, including the right of privacy.


We proudly support net neutrality and consider it to be essential for the freedom of speech.


Not only will StrongSalt protect data security of the IoT devices but also help protect the privacy of humans who are using those smart devices.


We envision a future where small communities can grow without fear of losing privacy.

Our Whitepaper

We are excited to share with you the StrongSalt Whitepaper. This Whitepaper introduces you to the decentralized data network designed for IoT and the humans using these devices to help preserve data privacy in the world of AI and smart devices. What sets the StrongSalt apart is the balance of security and ease-of-use.
