GoldBug - Heavily encrypted IRC and mail client
Review by on
There are various ways of communicating over the Internet, but there is not much in terms of security. GoldBug addresses this issue with rock-solid encryption algorithms and security measures. You can use its IRC, email and file transfer features without any worries, because the symmetric and asymmetric end-to-end encryption it provides will ensure that your conversations will stay private no matter what.

GoldBug is available for multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X and various Linux distributions. Its components are distributed in a ZIP archive, so you can just extract them and run the executable, without going through an installation process and without installing any prerequisite tools.

Although you don't have to go through an installation process, GoldBug will take you through a quick initial setup, because you will obviously need an account and a password. When the setup is complete, you may log in and access the main user interface. There are numerous controls placed at your disposal, which may be a bit intimidating at first.

The software's IRC, email, file transfer and other features can be accessed on separate tabs. Each tab provides you with everything you need to connect to IRC channels or to create your own chat server, view and send emails, exchange files and so on. Inexperienced users may have trouble figuring everything out right away, but if you know what channels you want to connect to, you should't have any difficulties.

Security is GoldBug's main focus. When it comes to chatting, the software offers an echoed IRC system. Each chatroom is defined with a magnet URI link with individual encryption details. Furthermore, GoldBug's StarBeam FileSharing feature is something more than your average encryption systems. When sending files, the software will encrypt, authenticate and seed individual bursts of data. You can expect the same level of security from other features as well, like the built-in email client or the P2P web search function.

Privacy and security will be your last concerns when communicating with GoldBug.

GoldBug offers powerful security measures. It provides IRC, email, file transfer and web search functions. The software is free and it doesn't need to be installed.

GoldBug may be a bit complicated for novice users.
