Seecrypt private VOIP network client coming to Windows Phone


imageWith Skype now belonging to Microsoft, who has been centralizing the distributed nature of the VOIP app, it has been increasingly difficult to make calls where users can be 100% sure they will not be overheard.

Seecrypt is an encrypted VOIP application that allows 2 users with the same app to make secure private calls to each other. The app already exists for iOS and Android, and in a recent FAQ the company has announced that they will be releasing a Windows Phone version of the app later this year.

The Seecrypt app allows one to make and send real-time, end-to-end encrypted voice and text messages using cryptology, key management and information security techniques. All data is encrypted on your device and each new session uses a different key. Seecrypt does not make use of a centralised Public Key Infrastructure, rather keys are generated on the device, using a cryptographically secure random number generator. This process of new key generation, without a central root of trust, is used in combination with two 256-bit cipher streams (RC4 and AES). Thus all communications are double encrypted, allowing the end-user maximum protection when making calls or sending messages to another trusted Seecrypt user.

The app works on a subscription basis, and costs only $3 per month, which does not seem too much if you really demand privacy.
