Kim Dotcom has posted on his Twitter account three screenshots of its new site Mega, which he defines as “a new age.”

The images offer some insights into what Dotcom has planned, with one of them showing a field marked with a key-shaped icon. It seems that users will have to use an encryption key.

A second picture shows the message: “To strengthen the key, we have collected entropy from your mouse movements and keystroke timings.”

According to The Register, the new service will enhance the generation of new passwords “by taking variables from each user's particular mouse and keyboard habits.”

The third screenshot shows a list of files including video of the raid on the Dotcom Mansion and a folder named as GCSB – the acronym for the New Zealand Government Communications Security Bureau.

Besides, the manager includes the ability to download and upload, along with a new inbox and contacts section, which means that users will be able to write messages or send emails to other members of Mega.

The Mega cloud service will be hosted at the New Zealand-based domain and it will be out on 19 January 2013, which will mark the one-year anniversary of the raid on Dotcom's mansion, affirms.
