Over the last year Marcus and me discussed ideas on how to make
encryption easier for non-crypto geeks.  We explained our plans to
several people and finally decided to start a project to develop such a
system.  Obviously it is based on GnuPG but this is only one component
of the whole system.  We prepared a short paper; if you are interested
you may download it from

There is also a brief (for now) web page dedicated to this project:



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
