Deutsche Telekom and the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology (SIT) are launching Volksverschlusselung, a simple and free e-mail encryption service. Their goal is to make state-of-the-art encryption methods accessible to everyone. Deutsche Telekom operates the service at a high-security data center. Cryptographic keys are created directly on the user's end device and never leave their device, making sure that they are never available to the infrastructure operator.
