Cross-application instead of application-specific.


Advantages for technology partners in the Qabel ecosystem.

Qabel simply encrypt everything. Always.

The platform idea underlying Qabel allows for a multitude of usage scenarios for various user groups.

On the user side there are private users who are regaining their privacy; businesses that are protecting themselves against industrial espionage; non-profit organizations and civil rights activists who keep their communication secret; and developers and providers of Qabel services, who add to their portfolio with their own Qabel services.

  • The features of the Qabel platform make many applications conceivable – from the Internet of Things through to the Industry 4.0 theme.
  • The Qabel Public License (QaPL), developed specially for the Qabel platform, established a fee for commercial use and rules out fees for non-commercial use. This means that only those who will use Qabel to earn money have to pay for it.
  • First and foremost, Qabel wants to earn money not with their own Qabel connections but with commercial services which are based on or even just use the system.
  • Licence holders, such as internet service providers for example, can offer their customers Qabel services such as hosting and back-ups, for example, for a fee. Private hosts and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) which don't earn any money with Qabel don't have to pay any licence fees to Qabel GmbH.
  • Use by military or intelligence service organisations is prohibited qua licence.
  • Non-commercial use is free of charge; private individuals or organisations may offer free of charge Qabel connections for free.
  • Qabel's decentralised approach also ensures that Qabel cannot simply be switched off. Qabel can be hosted on any number of servers and users of all instances can thus communicate with one another.
