Please Login to Remove!

Dear users,
we have released a FREE encryption for BlackBerry called SecretMail. It is still in its very early stages and we would like to hear your feedback!

Could you please post more details about how the encryption works and how it will work with other email systems?

Hello,
basically you just open an e-mail in the edit mode, click Encrypt and the body of the e-mail gets encrypted - you can save the e-mail which then stays encrypted. To decrypt, you just open the e-mail and hit Decrypt which results in an opening of a window which contains the decrypted body. You can send the encrypted message, but unless the person has SecretMail, he(she) won't be able to decrypt it. We are working on a web component which will address this issue though..
Thank you

Uh...

1. What level of Encryption do you use? DES2? Blowfish? WEP? ROT13?

2. You funded/connected with the CIA/NSA/DIA/any agency that snoops without warrants?

3. What sort of recovery techniques are available should something go worngxxx8482;

Hi,

I've tried using BES but was not able to Decrypt. It asked me for the password, which i entered correctly, but I could not read anything.

Am I doing something wrong? Great idea though...

Hi,
regarding your questions:

1. The app uses the XTEA encryption algorithm, which stands for an eXtended Tiny Encryption Algorithm
2. No way
3. In case you forget the password, then it is not possible to decrypt - but we are working on an improvement where you will be able to store your password (actually a hash of it), and if you specify a different one during encryption, it will prompt you with a message.

Thank you!

Hi,
thank you for trying out our software. By "could not read anything" you mean that the message was not decrypted corretly?

Thank you
