ORION Messenger is a quantum-secure messaging platform, empowering users with a protected environment for both one-to-one and large group chats.. It is the only platform allowing for large encrypted group chat and social media communications in an open free speech environment where it does not surveil its community or regulate content. The platform is ad-free, bot-free, and will never harvest or sell your data.
- ORION is quantum-secure.
- ORION encrypts one-to-one and large group chats by default.
- ORION encrypts both chats and media files. For testing purposes we have capped media files to 50 MB.
- There are no bots up or down regulating your content or its distribution.
- We do not harvest or sell your data.
- We don’t actively monitor chats.
ORION employs quantum-secure end-to-end encryption across all its platforms. In ORION Messenger we currently use the CRYSTALS-Kyber post-quantum algorithm as well as the traditional encryption algorithm x25519DH for asymmetric cryptography. Additionally, we use AES256 for symmetric cryptography. Our approach ensures that your data remains secure and inaccessible to all but the sender and anticipated recipients. Read more in our Lite Paper.
We focus on implementing encryption that isn’t just secure against current threats but is also prepared for future challenges, such as those posed by quantum computing. Unlike traditional encryption solutions, ORION’s post-quantum cryptographic practices and algorithms are specifically designed to withstand quantum computer attacks, ensuring long-term data protection.
ORION currently works on both mobile and desktop devices, utilizing the most current version of your browser of choice. Although we have tested a variety of devices and browsers, if you have issues, please report them to our team at [email protected].
