Now that the NSA is spying on US citizens - not just "some" citizens, but *ALL* citizens - perhaps it's time that we all start looking at CryptoHeaven as a means to protect our privacy? That is, unless the government has some back door into their systems... is that possible?

Hmmm......looks interesting. So I download Cryptoheaven and what do I get? I get a folder containing over 1,300 jar files, and absolutely no documentation on how to install them or even use this app! I checked their website and found phrases like "user friendly" and "easy to use".......but no installation/user instructions (at least none that I could find). Could it be that the folks at Cryptoheaven assume that anyone interested in their product already knows how to use it? Could it be that Cryptoheaven is only for an elite and special group of users, and I'm not one of them? Could it be that I'm just too stupid to use it? Someone, please help me out....WHAT AM I MISSING???

I have already posted my comment in other places, and I'll copy them here as people may be interested: Looking at the CryptoHeaven source code (downloadable at the CH web site ) I can confirm that all of the messages and files stored on the server are in an encrypted form. Too bad the server code is not available, but noone wants to work for free so I can understand that... Basically the administrators of the system have no way of knowing what is being stored on the servers because all root keys in the encryption chains end up on customer's PCs (always encrypted) or stored encrypted with customer's own passphrases which never leave their computers, nor are stored anywhere. As far as I can tell, this is a major difference between CryptoHeaven and most other online storage providers which only make the connectivity SSL secure, but not the data residing on the servers to which sys admins have access to. The system looks to be one of a few which really delivers the level of security it claims leaving little unsaid. Although it seems possible to privately implement additional algorithms like ECC and use it to communicate with your buddies (because the code is freely available), the copyright forbids it, and there are good reasons for that too. What I would like to see is integration with PGP so that we can start sending and receiving secure mail with an already established PGP user base. I have read somewhere that symmetric key length and hash length used are not equivalent in their cryptographic strength. This claim is irrelevant as the hash seems to be used "for display purpose only" and not in the security protocols. I have yet to see a non-encrypted hash of anything on the system, so this looks good too. Interesting is that they cannot reset your password in case you loose it. My explanation for this is because your private key (if stored on the server) is encrypted with the hash of your password, so you must have your original password to be able to decrypt your private key. If they were to reset it, your private key would have to be re-crypted with the hash of your new password, but to do that you still need the old password to decrypt it in the first place. Cleaver. Passwords are often the weakest links in security and to rectify that, YOU CAN STORE YOUR PRIVATE KEY LOCALLY (always encrypted). This is something that is not possible with systems like Hushmail and many others. Perhaps ability to sign other's keys and revoke signatures would create additional web of trust, but, oh well, you can't have everything. The functionality is great; someone wrote they are putting 'all the eggs in one basket', however it may be an attempt to do just that, there is still long way to go. Never less, it is a very usable and user-friendly product which is much more than just online storage!

How could anyone feel insecure using a product personally endorsed by none other than General Alexander Haig, Secretary of State for Ronald Reagan? shudder

Excellent application that makes encryption transparent and easy to use. This is not just an email application like some believe, it also handles instant messaging and file sharing... all encrypted and easy to use. They have a version for Windows too, so if your friends are still on Windows at least they can use this app.

This application is a waste. There is no reason why anyone would need to use this application, when IM applications can encrypt your instant messages, and you can use open standards to exchange encrypted email with your contacts already. Why on earth would I use this thing, which locks me into their weirdo "Heaven" where I can only talk to other Cryptoheaven users, when I can do the same thing, better, with anyone?

Why bother with this when you have OpenSSL, GnuPG and other standards that people all over the Internet use?
