Abstract/Artist Statement

SafeChat is an android application that allows users to safely and securely chat with another user. The problem SafeChat will solve is creating a secure messaging app between friends, colleagues, and associates. The current solution is to use special browsers and discrete messaging systems on a computer, but these do not allow for real-time messaging mobily. SafeChat solves this by being a downloadable mobile application that allows for secure messaging with people you know. Security is achieved by using a standard encryption algorithm on the mobile device side of the application, not the server side. This allows for safer transmissions as any data that could be intercepted by a malevolent party could not be read or understood. The application functions by having a central server to process users chats from their android devices. Users are required to create an account with a username and password. Once successfully logged into their unique secure account, users have the ability to add other friends and securely chat.
