About ShofarPortfolio™

The heart of the ShofarPortfolio project is to allow people and organizations to communicate freely and reliably without any third party being able to know that the communications takes place and to store and share data on the web with distributed resilient independently operated servers.


The fact that a given computer is connected to the web is easily determined.  However, by using our SyncPacket technology there is no indication when there is a person at the machine, who he is, or who he is communicating with.

Distributed storage

We seek to build a massive array of independent providers offering paid storage and connectivity.  The provider has only part of the user’s data which is also encrypted and therefore cannot recover any value from it.  The user has his data broken into parts with redundancy distributed over the globe to ensure that the data is available when desired and the confidence that the data is secure.

Business model

We are striving for the family business model where an individual or family can operate one or more services autonomously and receive remuneration for their work.  After all the “laborer deserves his wages” (Luke 10:7).  We seek to avoid becoming or fostering large organizations as service providers.

Services can be based on providing hardware, connection, domains, communications, storage, etc.  We seek to allow the novice a share in the model.  All providers are autonomous and we avoid any multi-level marketing schemes.

While we applaud efforts of others to build free systems, they can grow only so far.  Giving reason, in particular a financial reward motivates people to have a part-time or fulltime enterprise providing continual and stable services to others.

ShofarNexus is an intended freeware application designed to allow independent family run enterprises to act as autonomous providers of secure communications and data storage services that thwart monitoring and traffic analysis.

ShofarNexus has been in development since 1998. We have examined and discarded a massive number of technologies and business models to arrive at what we believe are solid principles. We are driven by the following ideals:

A Passion for Excellence

There is a difference between doing something the typical way, my way and the best way. When my way is unexamined, then we are simply driven by ego. If you are an engineer, scientist, artist, athlete, chef, etc. you can succumb to the typical group thought or you can pursue a better way. The incremental steps, when slight improvement is found, provide an inexplicable joy and fuel to press on even more.

The performance levels we have achieved in software with ShofarNexus™ have distanced ourselves from the typical and fueled our desire to press on.

A Love of Freedom

Success has no meaning where there is no possibility of failure.

The Glory of God

We are unashamedly Christian. This is the seed for us to pursue excellence and freedom.
