HOWZIT: SECURE PEER-TO-PEER MESSAGING (PROJECT 2)

Drongo

*Click on the logo for our last presentation*

 

Description of the project

The goal of the Drongo project is to provide an exchange of text messages between two users without the user being obliged to submit any personal information when registering into the application. Currently, there are applications on the market that all save exchanged messages between two users on a centralized server, creating a vulnerable point for various attacks. To avoid this problem, our application does not use any centralized server to store messages, but the messages are saved locally. To exchange contacts, users simply scan each other's QR code when they meet in person. All this was done with the intention that the application has as high a level of security as possible.

About name 

 

As a team we all agreed that we should change the name of the project because we want it to be something of our own and we wanted to leave a mark behind us. We started with brainstorming and we came up with many different suggestions. By voting on the poll we came from Howzit to DRONGO. There is a story behind this name.

Drongo is actually a bird, which frequently attacks much larger birds to protect their nests. Also, there is a fictional character named Drongo, a counter-terrorism operative employed by secret service. We combined the stories behind the name and came up with the logo - a bird with bright eyes and a hat. A hat represents the signature sign for detectives.

Colors

Colors that are used for the application are Classic Blue and Saffron. Classic Blue is declared as the color of the year for 2020 by Pantone Color Institute. Coincidentally, what we have in common as a team is that our favorite color is yellow, so we decided to choose Saffron as a shade.
