• The leet's First Prototype

    leetThe first "leet" working prototype is available at GitHub, you can download it now and experiment with it, it still has a few bugs which must be ironed out, and it should be simpler than this and more user friendly, but the first building blocks are already put in place.

    You can now create a main key, then encrypt any file with the AES cipher then decrypt it, the application might crash, and the README file should be updated soon for software requirements, if it doesn't work for you, you might have to install "pycrypto" and "setuptools" python 3 libraries. But please remember, this is early alpha software. All features aren't implemented yet, and there are still bugs in the code.

  • Site Overhaul and Migration

    Website ScreenshotWe now have moved our site from Google Sites to a standalone platform, with a new design and functionalities, the new site which you are seeing here shall be more flexible and expandable, more performant too!

    The site isn't finished being rebuilt, you should see more pages/articles and addons in the following days. Meanwhile please enjoy your stay while you are here, and keep coming back for more news and projects.

  • One More Step!

    StampOne step at a time, it is said, isn't it?

    One step closer to success we have made, the CCEx name is now a protected trademark for one year at least, next step is to register it for 10 years, this however is going to be a challenge as more paperwork is to be done, and securing the trademark for 10 more years at a time isn't guaranteed.

    In other news, I have put up a repository for the source code of the "Engage" space shooter project, downloadable here:  "see source code chapter", and we have made some progress on the "leet" OTFE software and algorithm project, you can access the code and request to contribute to it via the GitHub page found in the previous blog post.

    Next will be unlocking more funds to fuel our development, via whatever mean possible. I will see with my bank tomorrow, I have read that there are procedures for funding startups like ours via banks and associations. That should be interesting to discover, and ease on my personal resources as I have been funding all this on my own so far.

    I should also put the donation button back up in some page on our site, to let you donate in case there is any interest in helping fund our projects, in the coming days.

    That's about all for this time, keep on reading for more!

  • So Far..

    AppScreenHere is what our engineer has been up to so far, basically a structure for our project:

    1) crypto for algorithms, currently implemented abstract class and derived Caesar cipher as an example
    2) ui - currently not implemented, only basic bypass to test things
    3) driver
    4) test - automated unit tests, currently done testing of Caesar cipher

    Otherwise, more administrative work on the company's status and legal representation tomorrow.

    Possibly unlocking more funds for our projects may be part of the schedule.

    More news to come...

  • GitHub Page Up!

    GithubAs you can see here: https://github.com/CCExCompany/leet, we now have a GitHub page to host our code, you are free to browse it for non commercial use, as commercial licenses will be paid for.

    Our engineer hasn't uploaded any code yet, but it should only be a matter of a few days before everything will be accessible there.

    Keep coming back for more!

  • Professional Page Up at LinkedIn!

    LinkedInWe now have an official page at LinkedIn, we are in the process of setting up this page with current employees and all the available information, and later in the day we should make more progress on the "leet" project. Our contractor has quietly done work on "leet" since this last Monday... I am excited to discover what kind of news he is going to reveal to us. I am currently preparing a presentation for our collaboration, to better explain my vision about the project.

    More news soon...














  • A Signboard! And Some Other Exquisite Things...

    DesktopTomorrow is a holiday here in Morocco. So things should slow down a bit with the weekend following pretty closely.

    On Monday however, pressure is to be expected as I have a long list of things to do, for the company and myself. And among the things to do for the company is, getting a signboard for our reception room. It should go right next to the Botticelli painting which is next to the door, I should have a photo of the board as soon as we install it. In the meantime, I let you see a picture of my desk where I work.

    In other news I have made some advance on administrative tasks for CCEx, I have been out of town at an administration, some papers to fill and sign. It has been a pain to come back though as the road leads to the highway, so no taxis. A bit of walking et voilà! A taxi! Out of nowhere, as we expect them!

    More news on Monday or sooner likely...

  • One Day at the Med-IT Skhirat, Morocco

    BorchuresNot so long ago, I have received an invitation to the Moroccan "Med-IT" IT Salon taking place at the "Palais des Congrès", at Skhirat, a small city between Casablanca and Rabat, where important conferences and meetings take place, and decided to attend since there were to be presentations about Information Security among other things. 

    I have found, to my grand delight; Seagate, Karspersky, ESET, Plantronics, etc.. among the exhibitors, and have talked to a gentle representative of ESET about our company and their company's services, and the eventual business which could be made between us.

    From what he said, they have a team which can pen-test systems and algorithms, and they also train around cyber-security, both of which really interested me, and I have expressed to him my interest in those areas. We exchanged business cards, and said goodbye, I will probably come back to him when I need to test our algorithm and encryption software, "leet".

    I have also attended a few conferences, where I learned among other things, that data was, in our time, more valued than petrol, and also more durable.

    I have made a stop by a stand by Seagate, where I learned that I could acquire Hard Disks and SSDs at a lower price than at a re-seller.. More on this later, as I am exhausted after a trip via Train and Taxis, now I really need to take a sit and digest all these events.

    Keep coming back for more!
