A new update for PenTBox, includes a new program, Secure IM Client. With this program, users can create a direct chat room between client and server and with a mode of encoding that makes it a little secure.

PoC: How Base64 encoding/decoding works in the communication.

  • Client and server encode/decode the traffic in a simple Base64 based mode.
  • Server makes a random number (4 – 8).
  • Server sends this number to client. The traffic will be encoded and reversed this number of times.
  • Traffic is encoded and reversed, encoded and reversed, encoded and reversed...In the other way, traffic is reversed and decoded, reversed and decoded, reversed and decoded.

Newness of the project

IANA has approved the petition to include 6817 TCP port of PenTBox Secure IM Protocol in the list.
