Staying here

After 11-Sep-01, the inevitable voices are starting to talk about clamping down on encryption, such as the reactionary story at suggesting cruise missile attacks on servers passing encryption. So much for e-commerce with SSL protecting your credit card numbers, if the Torygraph were running the country.

However, the genie is out of the bottle - and has been for over a decade. And servers are much cheaper than cruise missiles.

We must also remember that there are positive reasons for seeking privacy via strong encryption, endorsed by reputable groups such as Human Rights Watch amongst others.

Closing my sites would also be futile, as to my certain knowledge there have been mirrors made by third parties that include the CTClib software.
