+ - Lavabit, Silent Circle create Open Source Dark Mail Alliance->

sfcrazy writes: Lavabit and Silent Circle are coming together to create Dark Mail Alliance. The goal of the two companies is “To bring the world a unique end-to-end encrypted protocol and architecture that is the ‘next-generation’ of private and secure email. What we call ‘Email 3.0.’ is an urgent replacement for today’s decades old email protocols (‘1.0’) and mail that is encrypted but still relies on vulnerable protocols leaking metadata (‘2.0’).” Realizing the benefits of Open Source/Free Software the companies have decided to “open source the protocol and architecture and help others implement this new technology to address the privacy concerns over surveillance and back door threats of any kind.”
