Digital Office

Opensource, secure and private collaboration infrastructure.

Open Source

S. ARAN Law Office provides a complete collaboration infrastructure (file sharing, document collaboration, video conferencing) and uses only open source software.

A software (computer program) is first written by the programmer in a programming language that is human readable and is called the source code of the program. To be understood by a computer, this program is translated into a sequence of zeros and ones that is not readable by a human. This is called executable code or machine code.

Software with open source license guarantees access to the human readable program. In this way, it is very risky for a programmer to include illegal or unethical functions such as collecting and encrypting personal data in a program.

Since the code of open source can be reviewed, it is better for privacy than closed and proprietary software where the code is kept secret by the programming company.
