Let's talk about encryption and security some more. [View all]

Some of us care about this issue out of pure professional interest, others on principle.. which I totally grok. I tinker. I'm a tinkerer, and one of the things I tinker with is encryption. I loved Hardy Boys as a kid, so let's inform each other.

The big question, it seems to me, is mobile phone security. There are currently paid services that will encrypt your voice calls so the *content* is however secure.. probably not real secure.. but I'm gambling that more free services will appear with similar ideas.

VOIP is an option, but which VOIP? Well, we know that Google and Skype are both in the PRISM program, so Google Voice and .. uh.. Skype are out. That leaves, mostly, paid services once again filling the gap. If I were paranoid, I would marvel at the coincidence that the two big free VOIP providers .. where call logs wouldn't normally exist per se .. are also in PRISM.

so here's what you want:

Linphone - 'Open source video SIP phone for desktop & mobile.'
