CryptPad (Collaborative Docs)
Collaborating on documents in real-time is incredible important in today's world. So this solution was a no-brainer.
Open Source Solution: CryptPad
Many alternatives are available to the the dominant doc collaboration tools from Microsoft and Google, but ThreeFold endorses and supports the CryptPad.fr open-source CryptPad project – a private-by-design alternative.
- It has most of the same crucial functionalities you would be used to with existing tools.
- More importantly, all the content stored on CryptPad is encrypted before being sent, which means nobody can access your data unless you give them the keys (not even us).
- Encryption happens in the browser that is used to access the "pads" – and therefore the central storage facility used does not see un-encrypted data and only sees encrypted data passing by.
The ThreeFold team uses it for internal documents and collaboration, and now so can end-users on the ThreeFold Grid. The functionality includes:
A rich text editor
This is an alternative to Word and Google Docs. It allows you to create documents and to collaborate with others to co-create documents, as CryptPad supports multi-user access to documents for co-editing and collaborations. The sharing facility uses unique access keys allowing other to see the content un-encrypted.
A code editor
A presentation creation tool
A spreadsheet creator and editor
A poll creation tool
A Kanban project management tool
A Whiteboard tool
An encrypted drive to store files
