Zimmermann creates Encrypted VOIP

Philip R. Zimmermann who created encryption software for email Pretty Good Privacy, or PGP is in news again for creating an encryption software for VOIP calling. He had some legal hassles with the email encrytion software, then. Looks like he is inviting scrutiny again.

Now he is again inviting government scrutiny. On Sunday, he released a free Windows software program, Zfone, that encrypts a computer-to-computer voice conversation so both parties can be confident that no one is listening in. It became available earlier this year to Macintosh and Linux users of the system known as voice-over-Internet protocol, VOIP.[more]
