We are currently restructuring the ICO and project materials, for a relaunch.

Distributed HTTPS.

Keeping financial transactions and web browsing secure: Introducing Aguris, a game-changing cryptocurrency.
Security and transparency... Welcome to the Polygora network.

See that little green padlock in the corner of your monitor? That means you're using HTTPS. HTTPS is a protocol designed to stop people snooping in on your transmissions over the web, by using advanced cryptography. When you see that green padlock, it means you're browsing safely on the web. But there's a problem. A big problem.

The technology behind the modern internet is fundamentally insecure. The backbone of half a billion websites, SSL, now known as TLS, is broken. TLS is the protocol behind HTTPS, which keeps your transactions with your bank, BitPay, and even your logins to Google secure - or at least, that's the idea. The current model, however, does not appear to be working.

A world where 200,000 of the top million sites have poorly implemented HTTPS is not acceptable. The consequences from having one's usernames and passwords stolen can be far-reaching, catastrophic, and hard to deal with. And if those details are financial, even one's wealth can become at risk.

The first rule of security is that of keeping the number of participants as low as possible - TLS adds a third, always looming, in total control over proving you're talking to who you think you are. These are Certificate Authorities - A centralised cartel of secretive bureaucratic corporations, issuing the documentation you need for safe browsing, and they have shown time and time again they cannot be trusted.

What is Polygora?

In simple terms:
The Polygora network is designed to replace the SSL/TLS certificate cartels, with a low-cost, blockchain-based solution, designed to empower users and secure the web.

Polygora issues TLS certificates, in a completely decentralised and automated way. This is achieved through a unique combination of proof-of-work mining, like that of Bitcoin, and a new paradigm for the use of blockchain technology.

Instead of existing purely for transactions, the network also allows users to request and renew X.509 SSL/TLS certificates. These are the the technology that keeps HTTPS secure, and so Polygora transparently protects all of one's internet usage. And it can do this all, for a lower cost than almost everyone else, thanks to the design of the software and blockchain.

It does this using Aguris, the network's internal cryptographic token. Miners earn Aguris mining blocks, and the market does the rest.

This means everything can be protected, from banking, to email, to Twitter. For consumers, this makes browsing safer; for webmasters, this makes implementing HTTPS a breeze. The centralised design of TLS doesn't need to be displaced - the Polygora network subverts the inherent flaws in the desig to create a self-sustaining, fault-tolerant system, impervious to malicious actors, and fraud.

This is Polygora.

Free and Open Source

The developers of the Polygora network are proud supporters of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), and so both the wallet, client, and server software will be released under FOSS licensing for anybody to reuse and redistribute at their leisure.

Transparently Secure

The Polygora network is designed to lock-down HTTPS and other TLS-based services. It helps keep both fiat and cryptocurrency transactions, messaging, even your Facebook connections secure. Polygora is designed to work transparently on top of existing services.

HODLable and Tradable

Polygora has it's own unique interal cryptographic token, known as Aguris, is tradable and exhangable with other wallet owners. Aguris will be tradable on major crypto-currency exhanges. A switch to proof-of-stake mining is planned after casper protocol is solved.

How does Polygora help?

SSL/TLS


The decentralised Polygora network issues cryptographically secure X.509 SSL/TLS certificates.

Transactions


Thanks to Polygora, payment requests and online transactions are kept private, as they're supposed to be.

Interactions


Certificates made by Polygora are never going to be malicious or breach your privacy.

Webmasters


Polygora's TLS protection allows customers to ensure the site they're visiting really belongs to you.

Consumers


Your favourite sites are secured, and your usernames and passwords encrypted, with the security HTTPS provides.

Merchants


Transactions are kept secure through the use of Transport Layer Security, so you and your customers' money is safe.

Decentralisation


Decentralised blockchain technology allows for safe and secure certificate issuance, guaranteed through consensus.

Transparency


The blockchain keeps all interactions across the blockchain transaprent and unalterable.

Immutability


Polygora-issued digital certificates are immutable and unforgable. Your website is provably yours.

Aguris tokens: About the ICO

The cryptocurrency to be used on the Polygora network is known as Aguris.

To help kickstart the Polygora Network once it goes live, and to fund development and proselytisation of the Polygora Project, the team are doing an ICO, as part of a crowdfunding effort. This system allows early contributors to help support the expansion of the Polygora project before the ICO release. This money will help go towards infrastructure and marketing costs.

The ICO has an upper limit of 680,000AGS and will start 00:00GMT December 12th, and end approximately 00:00GMT on January 31st.

The ICO will be completed via the use of an Ethereum smart contract, which will issue placeholder ERC20 tokens (the contract which generated the tokens will be available to view closer to the ICO start date. You will require a wallet with token compatibility to view your recieved Aguris. Upon completion of the ICO, all remaining tokens will be burned if accessible to prevent their proliferation into either network. Below we provide guides on buying Ethereum, Aguris, and how smart-contract sales work, for beginners.

ICO Information

0.1ETH = 60AGS.
1ETH = 600AGS.

Whitepaper

Here we present a prelimary document about the Polygora network, outlining the principles and general concepts behind the technology and blockchain in general, and propose how this system can be used to create a system of distributed nodes generating TLS. In future we shall be releasing more documentation to further flesh out the technological properties of the project, and developing the software on a public git repository.
