Silent Circle aims for email that's as secure as it gets

It's been 22 years since Phil Zimmerman, Jon Callas and the rest of the PGP crew brought encryption to the masses for free, and now the same team – augmented by backing from a couple of former Navy SEALs – has expanded into a new privacy concern that will launch an email service in a couple of weeks.

Silent Circle came out of stealth mode last June with a $20 (£13) per month package for voice, text, and video services that are encrypted by an application on a user's smartphone, tablet or computer. Users download the software and all traffic is handled by the company's own servers.

Encryption keys are set up on each device using the application and are then discarded once the message has been completed, so that they cannot be slurped. To further protect against wiretapping, the firm's servers that handle traffic are located in Canada and Switzerland, with an Asian location to be decided.

Now the company is moving into email, with an encryption system based on decades of encryption experience and the desire for private communications. Based on the team's background, there's good reason to believe it will be successful.

If anyone is currently looking for an encrypted anonymous email service then try riseup mail.  It's free, and I would venture to say the best service available.  There's also Tormail which is not user friendly in comparison to Riseup mail.  There is also Countermail which uses a java plugin to encrypt your communication. Countermail is not free though.  Those are the best services I found after researching anonymous encrypted email services about a year ago. That's not to say other great services could have been released since then.
