I am thinking about putting together an online course as a guide to setting up a perfectly secure chat system with end-to-end encryption for private and business use.

Right now, I’m collecting ideas and putting together a curriculum. I want to share it with the would to see if anything is flaming me 🙂 that I miss something important. Please, tell me what you think of it.

Course Description:

In this course you will learn how to set up an extremely secure and reliable chat system following a simple step-by-step guide. Once installed, it’s super easy to use and you can chat like using well known proprietary messengers like skype, whatsapp, viber, yahoo messenger… etc.

We will install a chat server and configure popular chat client software in a way, that all your communication will be encrypted by the most recent up-to-date security standards. The installation will solely be based on open-source software so you don’t have to buy any additional software. In addition to that, I chose very straightforward and easy-to-configure software components so configuration will be a breeze.

First, I will tell you about some of the mechanics that make the secure chat system work. Next, we will carry on to actually installing a completely functional chat system (server+clients) which can handle 100,000 users or more simultaneously. Then, I will show you how to configure your desktops and mobile phone clients for people to be able to connect to your secure chat system from everywhere in the world.

Connect all people within your department or the entire company, friends or simply everyone if you want to run a public service on the internet. If hat sounds appealing to you, this is the course for you!

If you are working in a corporate environment and are concerned about sending customer data via email, chatting about company secrets with off-shore teams and chatting about computer code examples, you might want to get as much chat privacy as possible.
