Re: 'New Encryption App Set to Revolutionize Privacy'Topics:
With Washington's thought police having set its sights on forcing telecommunications companies to store our text messages for two years ... just in case they needed them ... Silent Circle's newly developed, really cool, "surveillance proof app" to protect our calls and texts from government scrutiny is welcome news ... just because I don't like big government and believe in individual freedom and privacy:
"Named Silent Circle, it is in essence a series of applications that can be used on a mobile device to encrypt communications -- text messages, plus voice and video calls. Currently, apps for the iPhone and iPad are available, with versions for Windows, Galaxy, Nexus, and Android in the works. An email service is also soon scheduled to launch.
The encryption is peer to peer, which means that Silent Circle doesn't centrally hold a key that can be used to decrypt people's messages or phone calls. Each phone generates a unique key every time a call is made, then deletes it straight after the call finishes. When sending text messages or images, there is even a "burn" function, which allows you to set a time limit on anything you send to another Silent Circle user -- a bit like how "this tape will self destruct" goes down in Mission: Impossible, but without the smoke or fire. ...
