Session Desktop - Onion routing based messenger
Session integrates directly with [Oxen Service Nodes](https://docs.oxen.io/about-the-oxen-blockchain/oxen-service-nodes), which are a set of distributed, decentralized and Sybil resistant nodes. Service Nodes act as servers which store messages offline, and a set of nodes which allow for onion routing functionality obfuscating users IP Addresses. For a full understanding of how Session works, read the [Session Whitepaper](https://getsession.org/whitepaper).
This is an unofficial build of Session Desktop. However, the package is unmodified from upstream, and is simply a re-pack of the official builds. The snapcraft configuration for this can be found at https://github.com/popey/session-desktop-snap
