A brand new Clipperz!

Clipperz was launched on April 2007 and since then not much changed in the design of its user interface. We’ve been continuosly improving the underlying crypto and the application logic to make Clipperz faster and more reliable. But we never touched that 2007 look.
Well, today we are happy and proud to announce a brand new design along with several new features you’ve been waiting for so long.

New team member

We’re excited to announce a great addition to the Clipperz team: Dario Chiappetta. As an experienced software engineer, Dario will add more coding power to Clipperz. Looking forward to your commits! :)

New faster server

Starting from today, the main Clipperz server is located in Amsterdam. At the same time we are keeping a backup server in Reykjavík where data are mirrored.
Why this redundant setup? To get the best of both worlds: an hyperconnected data center on mainland Europe, combined with the protection offered by Icelandic legal system.

Clipperz is hiring a developer

We are looking for a developer interested in working on the Clipperz UI and, most notably, to become a full-time employee and a relevant shareholder in the company.

Web crypto: moving forward

I really appreciated Tim Bray’s post “Trusting browser code”. His pragmatism resonated with me and Giulio Cesare. At Clipperz we’ve been dealing with the issue of secure Javascript code delivery since 2006, but this is still an open issue that is eventually attracting the attention of some bright minds.
This post is an effort to reaching out to the small community of people interested in web crypto in order to share ideas and perspectives.

Clipperz financials 2013

All things considered, 2013 was a decent year for Clipperz. We didn’t expect any revenues from paid subscribers, but we wished to be able to launch the paid service by the end of the year. We missed that deadline on purpose, because we didn’t feel comfortable asking for (crypto) money until we can provide a good mobile experience. And designing a good interface takes time, especially when usability is intertwined with security.

Clipperz financials are trustworthy!

Going bankless

A few weeks ago the bank Clipperz has been using for years informed us that they have unilaterally decided to terminate our bank account. Why? No reason given, at least on paper. Informally we’ve been told that they were troubled by our fraudulent wires story. (click the image below to download the complete letter in PDF)
