Is Olvid technology open source?


Our cryptographic protocols are fully available here. The fruit of this work is subject to formal validation by Michel Abdalla, CNRS Senior Researcher and ENS Adjunct Professor, President of the Board of IACR (International Association for Cryptologic Research). The first article formalising his results is available on the IACR ePrint. The full code of the iOS and Android clients is available to Mr. Abdalla to enable him to validate the protocols as they are actually implemented.

Furthermore, the iOS version of Olvid has received from ANSSI a CSPN Security Visa (First Level Security Certification), following an audit by Synacktiv. In order to allow this ITSEC (Information Technology Security Evaluation Center) to evaluate Olvid in the best conditions, we provided them with the complete source code of the iOS client.

For the sake of transparency, we have decided to make public the evaluation technical report produced by the Synacktiv excellence team. Beware, this is indeed "technical" (and in French). Sensitive souls should refrain. You have been warned 🤓.
