SMS Over The Air


SMS Over The Air, formerly SOTA, is an application designed to catch incoming SMS on your Android phone and transfert them to your desktop computer, using the wifi local network. It only establish connections between your computer and you phone. In that way, your communications will never be seen on any external web service. In order to enforce privacy, SOTA uses RSA public/private keys to protect your data (algorithms provided by bouncycastle). In that way, nobody else than you will be able to read your messages.
