Lavabit is a term perhaps not many, but this e-mail service has been used for example by Edward Snowden for his email correspondence. The service encrypted email traffic and thus was sure that knew Snowden. Now Lavabit made tight.

Snowden used Lavabit, including in Russia, where he is staying so for weeks. Now the operator of the E-mail service, Ladar Levison, announced that he will make Lavabit close after 10 years. As the U.S. authorities would of course love to know what kind of information like Snowden as shipped from Russia, they naturally wanted to access the data on the verschlüsseten Lavabit servers. Of course Levison do not want to be complicit in crimes against the American people and that is why he now had to make this difficult decision according to the information. He makes up shop and of course tried the encrypted data will continue for another (the U.S. authorities) to keep them.

It is naturally very bitter for the operator because of this thing to close his business, but he just does not see any other way out.
