In late August, Kim Dotcom gave more details of what users should expect from Megabox, the file – sharing service that must be born from the ashes of Megaupload. Just over a month later, the project began to take shape in two videos. Today, in an interview with Wired magazine, he spoke a little more of the site, focusing mainly on their features security and privacy.
According to Dotcom, all files sent to the Megabox will be encrypted AES used and only the users who sent the files will have the key to decrypt it. Because of this protection, no one within the Megabox will have access to files, so it can not be held responsible if a user sends a file protected by copyright – and it also protects the event of seizure of servers.
By the way, speaking of the servers, Dotcom mentions that all files will be stored in two redundant data centers, one in each country. It also plans to allow anyone to become a Megabox server. “We are creating a system in which any world server […] can connect in our network, since servers can not see what was stored inside them,” he says.
The items discussed by Dotcom will be very welcome from the user point of view is not to be traced and must ensure that the files remain intact if a group of servers to be seized or taken offline. None of the items, however, should please the companies holding copyrights. The expectation is that it will be released later this year.
For those who have not seen the video of the creation of Megabox, released last month, it is below.
