“The idea of public-key cryptography is surprisingly simple, once you've figured it out.”

As a p≡p user you don't need to know how cryptography works exactly. But cryptography can be fun ;-) So if you're interested in the background, here is an article about How Two Men Unlocked Modern Encryption.

Remove total surveillance from the Internet: European project “pretty Easy privacy” is going to restore privacy for everyone

pEp – pretty Easy privacy – is a bundle of solutions anyone can add to his or her communication tools. Instead of providing another crypto app it encrypts messages in those tools where people are creating them: SMS, Email, Whatsapp, Facebook, Jabber (and more). It will run on the devices people own, including Windows, MacOS X, Apple iOS, Android and GNU/Linux based devices. And it is all 100% Free Software and Open Source.
