[LEAP/Torbirdy -- concluded on 2017/01/01]

Due to its age and design flaws securing email is notoriously hard. Without an easy-to-use e-mail client most users will not be able to adequately protect themselves. LEAP allows easy set-up of secure e-mail providers, but currently LEAP integration into e.g. the popular Thunderbird email client requires manual configuration and does not provide anonymity of the connection from the client to the server via Tor. What if users could profit from automatically encrypting email and retain their privacy?

The project will integrate LEAP usage into the well-regarded plug-in TorBirdy to allow easy to use email integration. The integration with LEAP into TorBirdy will allow a "one-click" install for Thunderbird to provide better anonymity and a working email client for the LEAP project. This will result in the highest-level of anonymity, privacy, and security possible today with e-mail.

A project of the LEAP Encryption Access Project.
