A beta version of the Signal Desktop client is now available and What's App integrated the Signal protocol into their widely used messenger. TLS certificates are now available for free, many websites provide https, and certificate transparency is on a good way to solve the CA problem. It really seems like the world of computer security has become a bit less broken over the past few years. I'm wondering why it took humanity so long to create a usable secure communication platform that supports multiple devices and group chats, but I'm happy that this problem finally solved. Nobody should have an excuse to communicate insecurely anymore!
- How do we get rid of insecure e-mail?
- When will What's App hide the meta data?
