Academic Signature


Recommended Posts

An open source program for elliptic curve cryptography using a wxWidgets GUI  ( ecc digital signatures, ecc encryption and timestamps)






Academic Signature is to be used as a "Swiss Army Knife" of strong cryptography - you trigger all operations manually, nothing is done without your consent. Intelligent lay people can install it, understand it and use it. Yet it offers the strongest cryptographic protection available today (up to 1024 bit ecc, symmetric ciphers up to 4096 bit blocklength and keylength).

It is a self contained public key cryptography program, which minimizes dependency on NSA influenced products and standards. 

The necessity for such a solution becam obvious in summer 2013, when Edward Snowden thankworthily blew the whistle on NSA behavior: The NSA aggressively pushed back-doored cryptographic standards, betrayed international academic values, lied to their parliamentary control panel(under oath) and treated everyone -including US citizens- as "spying target".

It thus has been shown to be completely out of control. Unfortunately the US Administration still seems more determined to pursue its war on whistle blowers than to clean up this mess. So this deplorable state of affairs is here to stay with us and all honorable people have to cope with ongoing NSA spoofing and spying. You can be absolutely sure this will not improve under Trump.

Using strong cryptography for your data in transit can be a building block in defending your privacy and our freedom. I can only hope that democracy, openness and honesty will prevail, agencies gone nuts will be tamed and their mazed leaders will be brought to justice.


(Academic Signature now features a GUI for invoking GnuPG as well)

     We are living in a time where those, who spy on their own people,
     want to imprison the honest man, who revealed it to the people.
