Back when he worked for the government, Daniel was struck by the fact that even an elaborate institution like his employer had no safe means of transferring files. Instead, would-be secure documents were emailed from person to person, unencrypted, across public networks because there was no viable alternative for those involved.
This gave rise to a quick & dirty way to make file sharing safer whilst still not requiring non-technical users to understand or install complex software. Korra is a simple Django-based web service that employs symmetric encryption and makes sharing files securely easy for everyone.
