[liberationtech] Crypho

I had a chance to try out crypho a couple of weeks ago at a demo they
put on at noisebridge.  I have some concerns about it, namely the
delivery of crypto code over javascript without any sort of verification
of it's authenticity (via browser plugin, etc.), since this point has
already been discussed to death on this list however, I do not wish to
re-open that debate.
I managed to find a couple of javascript injection attacks in the beta
already, though the developer assures me that they are working on fixing
all the bugs right now, still the lack of attention to basic web
security at such an early stage is concerning.
That aside it seems okay, though I have some worries about side channel
attacks and the fact that it hasn't been peer reviewed as far as I can
tell yet.
It does seem like an interesting project though, with some smart people
behind it. I am looking forward to seeing the code once they open source it.
