Adeona: open-source protection for your laptop

Cezar Renta

Presenting Adeona, your free software driven laptop angel from The University of Washington. The great thing about Adeona is that it doesn’t rely on any centralized web service or any 3rd party. Shortly, this means that you can install Adeona on your laptop and…that’s it.

How does Adeona work?

Adeona is designed to use the Open Source OpenDHT distributed storage service to store location updates sent by a small software client installed on an owner’s laptop. Adeona monitors the current location of your laptop, collecting all types of informations such as IP addresses and network details.

I think the main advantages of Adeona are quite clear, a free software that protects your laptop without no use of contracts or 3rd party monitoring sites. Being open-source also guarantees that Adeona will be improved over time, making it possibly the only anti-theft solution you may need. There is also a Mac OS X version of Adeona, featuring the option of taking photos using the iSight camera.
