Pica Pica is a project aimed to create and support distributed decentralized secure instant messaging system. Pica Pica network consists of nodes and clients. Nodes are hosted by volunteers on their computers. Nodes connect to each other and exchange info about other nodes and online clients, transfer encrypted data between clients. All data transferred between clients is protected by end-to-end encryption using TLS 1.2 protocol. Users are identified by unique SHA224 hash of their certificate which is generated during account creation.
