Dear all,
please find attached a request to evaluate the secure communication tool to
be ready to be officially suggested by EFF and Security Advisors.
Thanks for feedback, regards Randolph

Thank you for writing to EFF. I'm glad that there are people who are
working on secure communications tools--in fact, I am at a security tool
hackathon in New York right now. However, EFF cannot recommend any tool
that has not had a thorough security audit and we do not have the
resources to perform such an audit ourselves. If you are working on an
open source security communications tool that you would like EFF to
recommend, I suggest that you subject it to an extensive audit by
 security professionals.
