New Encrypted Email Services Coming From Kim Dotcom’s Mega And Newzbin | Techdirt

Mega chief executive Vikram Kumar told ZDNet that the company was being asked to deliver secure email and voice services. In the wake of the closures [of other email services like Lavabit], he expanded on his plans. Kumar said work is in progress, building off the end-to-end encryption and contacts functionality already working for documents in Mega.That’s not going to be easy, as both Lavabit and Silent Circle know too well. Despite that challenge, Mega isn’t the only company hoping to meet it. Another, rather surprisingly perhaps, is Newzbin, best known as a UK Usenet aggregator. TorrentFreak explains: according to the site’s former lawyer, Newzbin intends to make a comeback with new services designed to defeat NSA spying. “We are horrified by the recently disclosed antics of the NSA in indiscriminately spying on all Internet users,” David Harris told TorrentFreak. “We cut our teeth protecting our users from the surveillance of corrupt US corporations like the Hollywood movie studios. We now plan to bring a range of privacy services to help protect the public from governments. Our first product is a secure email service which is about to enter closed early beta testing.”
