The Calyx.net privacy test-bed is a software suite that aspires to redefine best practices for users of the internet and for online service providers. In its initial phase it simply provides an encryption layer for Internet traffic. In a later stage it will provide encrypted cloud-based email services and file storage. The privacy test-bed comes with a software client that can run on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux or Android. It can be used in conjunction with the 4G wireless data service, or over any standard Internet connection.

When you create account credentials on the privacy test-bed, it is important to note they are not linked to your account on this website. You will have two different logins and passwords.
