Everyday users of the Internet, i.e. the masses, can now easily use cryptography (“crypto”). Crypto for the masses is here. No longer do we have to send messages as the equivalent of postcards, open for everyone to read on the way. Crypto provides the envelope.
I gave a presentation on this topic at the 2013 Forensic Conference in Auckland on 14th May. A PDF of the presentation can be downloaded from Mega (if you’ve never downloaded a file from Mega, give it a go and see how quick it is).
The summary of the presentation was:
- Crypto for the masses now meets all the market adoption factors. Is becoming increasingly common, expect rapid growth.
- Mega provides secure, privacy-protective cloud storage and collaboration for everyone. 3 million users. Messaging and further applications coming later this year.
- Decryption for lawful purposes impossible for Mega, others without password.
