[liberationtech] Roundcube PGP plugin

Hi!

In case you have not tired of webmail-related PGP discussions, a friend of
mine just implemented a PGP plugin for Roundcube:

http://qnrq.se/rc_openpgpjs_ending_seven_years_of_roundcube_insecurity/

"Roundcube is a popular open source IMAP webmail application. Roundcube
is used by Harvard University, UC Berkeley and University of Michigan.
Apple Mac OS X 10.7 uses Roundcube per default in its Mail Server. While
writing this a lazy Google dork estimates 133 000 public Roundcube
installations.

PGP support was first requested seven years ago and set critical six
years ago. PGP support has been requested actively ever since. One of
the core developers began the development of his PHP implementation, the
Enigma plugin, two years ago but the plugin has not been made functional
yet.

Today I am proud to release a beta version of my Roundcube plugin that
implements PGP using the OpenPGP.js (based on GPG4Browsers) JavaScript
library. rc_openpgpjs enables OpenPGP to function in the user’s browser
so that fundamental key storage security isn’t immediately broken by
design, in opposite to the official Enigma plugin."

Code is available on github: https://github.com/qnrq/rc_openpgpjs

Best
