E nThinnai is a bold attempt to create a messaging application that is user-centric, privacy focused and allows users to own and easily port their data. While many web-based applications focus on massive scalability, our focus has been low-end scalability so that an individual can run this application on a low-end server like Raspberry Pi, or a wi-fi router without losing any functionality including loss of so called network effect.

These objectives have led us to certain design objectives like :
  • • user-centric and portable identity
  • • administrative-less authentication mechanism
  • • authenticated guest access
The last feature allows for two individuals to contact each other even if they are served by different servers without requiring federation between their servers. Finally, a user can invoke different use cases via simple settings without requiring any programming. This allows us to make this application available to a general user.
