Safester includes Open Source software:


We created Safester to tackle the issues usually seen with traditional email encryption solutions. When talking to users of encryption software (most often OpenPGP-based), the sticky points we found were :

  • It’s difficult to use, especially when it comes to managing and exchanging public keys with contacts.
  • It’s impossible to send an encrypted message to someone who doesn’t have the right software installed (and doesn’t want to pay for it).
  • Your inbox ends up being a mix of sensitive/confidential emails and trivial ones.
  • There is always the risk that missing an option or a setting will result in sending an important message unencrypted.
  • Integrating encryption plug-ins with email client software like Outlook, Lotus or Thunderbird is usually difficult – let’s be honest, it’s a pain in the butt…
  • And there is also the risk of losing files or private keys between computers.

So we decided to devise a solution which would make all those problems go away and set the following design principles:

After two years of development, this solution now exists. It’s Safester. Enjoy!
