Sedicii allows two parties that have access to the same information to prove to each other that they both have exactly the same information, or not as the case may be, without ever exposing the underlying information to each other in the process.

Sedicii is applying this patented technology to build an identity exchange where parties that have lots of trusted identity attributes in their databases can help others to confirm individual identity details without exposing, sharing or transmitting any of the information that they hold. The attributes that the organisation holds are transformed using the patented Sedicii process which makes the information unusable to anyone other than another Sedicii process or server.

Well first things first, it’s pronounced Uooka as in you-ka. And now that we have that vital piece of information out in the open, I’m sure you’re wondering what the hell a “flash messenger” actually is.
Stick with me and we’ll get to that, but first, let’s look at what the Uooka Flash Messenger actually does. In a nutshell, it allows you to send messages from your Android device to another Android device.
Big whoop eh? There are loads of messaging apps out there that do that, right? You, kind Sir/Madam, are indeed correct, however, there are no messaging apps that do it, the way Uooka Flash Messenger does it. Uooka encrypts your message using military grade encryption software (PKE) that encrypts your message before it sends it.
And now here’s the fun part, only the person who the encrypted message is intended for can open it. Only they can open it because when you install Uooka Flash Messenger, it creates a cryptographic key on your Android device and only on your Android device.
This key is stored nowhere else and it is needed to decrypt the message. So let’s say while your message is in transit, a very rich/scary man comes to our offices and tells us that if we let/don’t let him read the message you just sent they will give us $1 million/a nice set of concrete shoes.
Well, unfortunately, we would have to decline both offers, because we don’t have the key required to decrypt the message. We don’t have it because it only exists, where? Yep, you guessed it, on your device.
