Encryption offers valuable security for many important things in daily life. In fact, we depend on encryption working properly, but we may not always be aware of its presence. This site hopes to make strong encryption for personal messages easy: it offers free professional advice on how to protect yourself and your information. We also talk about wider security issues, such as physical security and national security vis-à-vis information technology. But our focus is on helping people keep their information private. In today’s interconnected world, that is not an easy task.
We hope to get people jazzed about cryptography. Cryptography has a fascinating and curious history, and its modern methods are central to our lives.
Everything on this site is publicly available and free. We will help you make informed decisions as to which security products and encryption methods to choose. We will also show you, step-by-step, clearly and from the beginning, how set up and use strong encryption so that it actually works.
Trust and privacy do not have to go out the window in our connected world. The main ideas that you will find on this site are that all internet-connected devices are fundamentally unsecure and unsecurable; that security is relative and not absolute; that big companies such as Google and Microsoft want to deceive you, which is dangerous now and could be very dangerous in the future; that you must have a secure device that never touches the internet– is air-gapped; and that simple means exist which will enable you to enjoy a high expectation of privacy and anonymity on the big collection platform and gladiator’s battlefield that we all love, the internet.
We enable trust.
