Which apps and tools actually keep your messages safe?
Our good friends at EFF have just published their Secure Messaging Scorecard.
In the face of widespread Internet surveillance, we need a secure and practical means of talking to each other from our phones and computers. Many companies offer “secure messaging” products—but are these systems actually secure? EFF decided to find out, in the first phase of a new Campaign for Secure & Usable Crypto.
This scorecard represents only the first phase of the campaign. In later phases, they are planning to offer closer examinations of the usability and security of the tools that score the highest here. As such, the results in the scorecard below should not be read as endorsements of individual tools or guarantees of their security; they are merely indications that the projects are on the right track.
