The need for a privacy and security focused communications ecosystem has never been
higher. Distrust and centralized powers abound, with third parties monopolizing users’
information and governments imposing surveillance tactics on citizens inside and outside
their borders. Each takes advantage of the same decades-old architecture on which the
entire Internet is built.
The Mainframe network is the communication layer for the new web. This goes beyond
human-to-human messaging. There are many use-cases and applications for reliably,
privately, and securely routing data packets through the Mainframe peer-to-peer network.
Mainframe is resistant to censorship, surveillance, and disruption. With the exception of a
catastrophic asteroid event or an aggressive alien invasion, the Mainframe network is simply
unstoppable. We build with five fundamental principles as our guide.
Encryption — Your content can’t be opened.
Dark Routing — Your content can’t be followed.
Peer-to-peer architecture — The network can’t be shut down.
Incentivisation — The network can’t die.
Interoperability — The network works everywhere.
Security weaknesses increasingly threaten not just our comfort but our material well-being.
Those vulnerabilities are a product of outdated paradigms and architecture. They can be
fixed by rebuilding both.
