Förderjahr 2016 / Projekt Call #11 / ProjektID: 1701 / Projekt: SoniControl
The second Open Minds Award ceremony, also known as the Austrian Open Source Award, was held on November 9th 2018 at the Palais Wertheim in Vienna. The room was full, showing how active the open source community is in Austria.
SoniControl was nominated and won in the category Open Software - System and Security. The jury's reasons for choosing SoniControl were, on the one hand, that it addresses a particularly perfidious and new tracking system and, on the other hand, that SoniControl has managed to create awareness in society for this new technology.
We want to thank netidee once again for its support to our project and the whole open source community !
Since April 2017, Alexis has been involved in several projects, including three funded by netidee : SoniControl, SoniTalk and now SoniControl 2.0.
- SoniControl focuses on the development of a privacy preserving app for mobile devices that notifies and blocks ultrasonic tracking information.
- SoniTalk focuses on the establishment of a secure and privacy-oriented protocol for ultrasonic communication.
