Take control of your communication with Ring!

Adrien Béraud and Guillaume Roguez, Savoir-faire Linux

Do you know Ring? It's a free software for real-time communication. Developed by Savoir-faire Linux and a community of contributors, it operates in peer-to-peer - so without a central server. Communication is tightly coupled to the sense of liberty. Ring let users keep control of their exchanges.

It allows you to make audio or video calls, and to send messages - in confidence and safely. Currently in an alpha version, Ring is even more than that! Available on GNU/Linux, Windows, Mac OSX, and Android, it can be associated with a conventional phone service, integrated with any connected device, and adapted to the specific needs of users. It is a combination of technologies and innovations opening all kinds of perspectives for everyone!

During this presentation, you will understand how Ring is built to respect privacy and how you can use it. You will also discover why it is an essential tool for the future and how Ring defends freedom.

This talk was presented at LibrePlanet.


LibrePlanet is the Free Software Foundation's annual conference. The FSF campaigns for free/libre software, meaning it respects users' freedom and community. We believe that users are entitled to this; all software should be free.


We do not advocate "open source".

That term was coined to reject our views. It refers to similar practices, but usually presented solely as advantageous, without talking of right and wrong.


Richard Stallman launched the free software movement in 1983 by announcing development of the free operating system, GNU. By 1992, GNU was nearly operational; one major essential component was lacking, the kernel.


In 1992, Torvalds freed the kernel Linux, which filled the last gap in GNU. Since then, the combined GNU/Linux system has run in millions of computers. Nowadays you can buy a new computer with a totally free GNU/Linux system preinstalled.


The views of the speaker may not represent the Free Software Foundation. The Foundation supports the free software cause and freedom to share, and basic freedoms in the digital domain, but has no position on other political issues.
