encryption for all




I have been written by Stefan, he runs with his colleagues Felix Leupold and Thomas Klingbeil offering . The computer science students of the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam have the project with the following target on the legs: the encryption of messages in social networks, such as Facebook.

The NSA scandal has shown that there is a great demand for secure communications on the Internet. The cryptographic technology to have existed for a long time. However, encryption has not been enforced to date with the normal user, because it is too complicated. One circumstance under which I can write like this.

The boys now want to solve this problem by programming tools that can be used easily and encourage children not compromise. As a first prototype they have programmed a Chrome extension that encrypts the Facebook chat. In order to complete the development and use on mobile devices (iOS and Android to provide), they have an IndieGoGo campaign launched. The campaign will serve to finance the apps, the project as such is a non-profit project.

Whether this project will prevail? I find it commendable, crypto tools for text, there are some, but none of them uses. Similarly, it is likely to run again.
