An ephemeral nym GUI client

Project description


nymphemeral is a tool made for users searching for secure and anonymous communication on the internet.

It is a GUI client that relies on a pseudonymous remailer that communicates to its users by posting messages to a shared mailbox, a Zax-type nym server. Both the server and the client apply an ephemeral encryption layer on their messages based on the Axolotl Ratchet protocol, providing forward and future secrecy to the conversation.


Current Release

The current version of nymphemeral is 1.3.2, a beta, released 2015-05-13.


You can find installation and usage instructions (with screenshots) on the documentation.


Please report any suggestions, feature requests, bug reports, or annoyances to the GitHub issue tracker.
