|Basically I've been worrying about email recently and about how the NSA is storing all of them. So I was wondering, are there any messaging systems which are:|
Secure / Private
I was imagining a Skype / Bittorrent hybrid which would be P2P, store secure messages in hundreds of other computers, and then when you come online they all end up downloaded in your inbox. I suppose it would work using Public-key cryptography for total security. Somehow you'd have friends so that you could eliminate all spam, or have the ability to create addresses like Bitcoin and give unique ones to each company you deal with. Then if they spam you, just revoke the address.
This all seems within the realms of possibility but there's just nothing and all this technology is known about, so why not?
It just seems to me that email as a system just isn't working. You can have SSL between your comp and your mail server, but then what about the connection at the recipient's end? It's all down to them to sort out. Then what if there are back doors on the mailservers (AND THERE ARE!)?
