Syncthing is an open source program intended to replace Dropbox and/or BitTorrent Sync by providing the exact same ease of use and functionality without sacrificing your data to intelligence agencies.

- Private. None of your data is ever stored anywhere else than on your computers. There is no central server that might be compromised, legally or illegally.

- Encrypted. All communication is secured using TLS. The encryption used includes perfect forward secrecy to prevent any eavesdropper from ever gaining access to your data.

- Authenticated. Every node is identified by a strong cryptographic certificate. Only nodes you have explicitly allowed can connect to your cluster.
