There's no demo version available, but based on the screenshots and the
information on the site, it looks like it's using a "one-time pad"
generated using a PRNG or other sequence-generator seeded with a key
generated by the application, and it's the key that's exchanged.
They call this a "Virtual OTP Cascade", but I believe it would be more
correct to call it "a proprietary stream-cipher implementation with a
silly name attached".
I'd also be curious if anyone else has used it so they can verify that it
works this way.
