Hackers from Lulzlabs have taken it upon themselves to create a free digital communications protocol that doesn’t deal with expensive, highly-surveilled commercial and government controlled infrastructure.
It is called Airchat.
Airchat uses an off the shelf amateur transmitter to create a mesh network between other Airchat users running the same software.
>The protocol is based on the Lulzpacket, a few bits of information that give the message error correction and a random code to identify the packet. Each node in this mesh network is defined by it’s ability to decrypt messages. There’s no hardware ID, and no plain text transmitter identification. It’s the mesh network you want if you’re under the thumb of an oppressive government.
