Blow the whistle – Secure remote interviews with podcall
Written by unknown on 28/10/2018
End-to-End IoT security for +2bn endpoints Co-host of the “Distributed Future” podcast
During my latest webrtc research for the webradio, I had the oportunity to have a conversation with Tim Panton, krankygeek ,early member of the IETF [rtcweb] working group and he told me about his recent projects.
One of them is of course pi.pe, a concept of a service who offers direct authenticated data transport layer between connected devices and their owners. End-to-end security and identity management for the IoT will have a huge impact in the future with all these connected devices I believe.
One of Tim’s side-projects called distributedfutu.re – the never-ending dream of decentralization continues, were my first thoughts but it´s far more, so I continue reading.

But you might think, what is it good for?
Record remote interviews on mobile
and it works like this:
- The interviewer clicks on a link.
- A random string and a QR code will be generated and shown on the screen.
- The interviewer sends the link or share the picture to the interviewee.
- The interviewee receives the link or image and press accept.
- The secure connecting between both devices is established and the interviewer can record both audio signals.
- Later on, the interviewer can download the audio file in .webm format.
Try for yourself from a laptop, desktop and/or a mobile device.
I believe that experiments are the key to successful innovation
Hopefully, I have the chance to talk about Family Systems Unrupt next time and I can be the interviewer.;)
P.S: I really had a kind of Déjà vu, when i saw the rendezvous-service.md and it remembered me at the days when we were experimenting with Stuart Cheshires wide-area bonjour/rendezvous implementation for our fun project.;)
