Arcan-A12 Tools

A12 clients for different platforms and devices such as drawing tablets

The interaction patterns with our compute devices have switched from "one device - multiple users" over to "one user - multiple devices" and this new reality requires shift in how user personal data is shared and synchronised between their devices.

A12 is a network protocol designed to establish a secure and highly interconnected network of personal compute devices that has been developed as part of a larger Arcan umbrella project. The protocol includes peer-to-peer channels and cryptography components.

This follow-up project sets out to implement lightweight applications that will be capable of networking over A12 protocol to enable remote control, sensor and screen sharing, file sharing, notification sharing and enable other personal data flows. The end goal is convenience of having interconnected devices without sacrificing privacy and performance.
