ElasticSockets

Transient secure private networks, and dynamic communities of interest

About

Westgate Cyber Security is a UK-based company engaged in the research and development of new computer security technologies, and board-level cyber security risk awareness training.


 

Research

Our ElasticSockets communication protocol is a patent-application backed communications technology which allows parties sharing only minimal knowledge of one another to rapidly establish mutually-authenticated, secure and directly connected communication channels.

The ElasticSockets architecture combines our novel method of authentication with peer-to-peer networks to fully abstract end-users from the complexity of public key exchange, and common obstacles to establishing direct connectivity such as NAT traversal.

ElasticSockets makes it easy for developers to create software in which users and systems can freely form transient, secure, and directly communities of interest with minimal friction - qualities particularly suited to deployment in unpredictable scenarios where flexible, but robust and highly secure communication channels are required at short notice.

From enabling co-operative communication in Government, legal or commercial sectors, to lashing together coalition forces, disaster relief agencies or computer networks into short lived and highly secure enclaves for task or project-specific operations; The opportunities and use cases for secure, instant-on, easy to use and simple to deploy digital communications are extensive.

Please see our technology page for more information about ElasticSockets.
