SimpleSecure, GPG contactform

SimpleSecure is a plugin that allows you to insert a secure contact form on any page or post. The email message submitted by your visitor is securely encrypted using GPG/PGP, however no binaries are required nor are any shell calls necessary. SimpleSecure includes a pure PHP port of the GPG encryption functions which allows it to run on any server that supports PHP. In other words, you do not need to install GPG or allow shell access to PHP on your server.

Post hieronder je GPG-key als je er eentje gemaakt hebt!
En denk eraan: als je een key maakt voor jezelf, zorg ervoor dat deze minsten 2048bits lang is. In december hebben ze wetenschappelijk aangetoond hoe kortere keys gebroken kunnen worden.

The crypto dream

We’re living in a world where it’s possible to visit Tokyo without ever leaving your bed, and where governments go to war with software rather than tanks. Yet in some ways the real future is more Stephen King than William Gibson. The plane landed; nobody was on board.
There are a few amazingly bright spots in this dull landscape — I’ll get to them in due course — but for the most part crypto just hasn’t lived up to its privacy billing. The question is why? What went so terribly wrong? In the rest of this post I’ll try to give a few of my answers to this question.

The guys at GPGTools are doing some fantastic work in bringing a comprehensive GPG implementation into Mac OS X, and Apple seem to not only ignore the need for such an important tool, but consistently screw things up with Mail such that every new OS X update the GPGMail plugin is rendered useless.

Quick Guide to Email encryption

This chapter will introduce you to some basic concepts behind mail encryption. It is important to read to get some feeling of how mail encryption actually works and what its caveats and limitations are. PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) is the protocol we shall use for e-mail encryption. This protocol allows us to digitally sign and encrypt mail messages. It works on an end-to-end basis: messages will be encrypted on your own computer and will only be decrypted by the recipient of the message. There is no possibility for a ‘man-in-the-middle’ to decipher the contents of your encrypted message. This excludes the subject lines and the ‘from’ and ‘to’ addresses, which unfortunately are not encrypted in this protocol.
