    I was just wandering if there was anything in cryptosuite that would be worth buying it over using the free PGP Desktop Security Version 6.5.8

    Hi there,
    the encrypted chat is safer communication then a phonecall and much cheaper and hosted on your own system in stead of a far away unknown server and without uninvited guests;
    the encryption technics and many reasons more are more advanced;
    no backdoors;
    we know the developer, etc etc.

    There is some features that PGP has over CryptoSuite, and there is some CryptoSuite has over PGP. I would say the default PGP file encryption isn't as secure as CryptoSuite's dual layer 256bit encryption, but they are still both very secure.

    If you needed features from both programs then you could always run both programs side by side, PGP is free after all.

    Hi,


    This is not true because anybody can buy and use the program this includes
    uninvited guests.

    And because of the many BAD and EVIL people that prowl the Internet, some
    of the uninvited guests are people trying to protect the children of our world
    and rightly SO.

    So these uninvited guests are not really Uninvited Guests.

    I and All should welcome them.

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:

    No, although i do agree with lots of what you say, this time i don't and for this simple reason:
    If i open CryptoSuite to host a chat session on my system, i am the owner of that whole host and i can decide to whom i give passwords etc to enter my chatbox; while at the same time i can look among others in Port Explorer if the person is the one intended.
    So any uninvited extra person is kicked out by myself, there are no backdoors or other onlookers, no sysops on the host as that i am myself.
    It is a little different when you advertise your chat open on internet for everybody to read or inside a company network, then you are not 1005 sure who is who, but that is still controllable as there is still no far away host.
    Inside a corporate network you can have the same kinds of control.

    All messages you transmit are encrypted. For instance open your TDS, listen on the port you use that moment for the chat and you will see all unreadable encrypted stuff; try the same with the socket spy in Port Explorer.

    So even a listening phone company or ISP saving all your data as they are obliged can do nothing with that material, as it is all encrypted already.

    The high security of the program is reason why it had to be tested in the light of the Wassenaar Arrangement about software and military standards etc etc etc as Jason explained at the introduction of this program long ago.
    So believe me, this communication via CryptoSuite is very secure.

    See the difference if you open for instance a MSN chat with a far away unknown server somewhere and not encrypted and who knows who farther finds you and follows your communication; backdoors, intrusions, etc.

    So i have very good reasons to say that communication via CryptoSuite is very safe.

    Hi, Jooske

    Thanks you Jooske for your reply.

    I really do not know much about chat [Nothing going my my last post]

    I do not doubt anything you say.

    And in no way was I meaning CryptoSuite is unsafe or anyone at DiamondCS
    would leave a backdoor.

    It is solely on the fact that the only place I have seen it [CS chat] is here at
    this forum.

    So I assumed [badly, wrongly,] without malice that how it worked.

    I do believe in as much privacy and security as one can get, But there is always a but.

    But may I say, It may be too safe because I what I said in my post.

    I do not believe we can have both Total Privacy and Security with out forfeiting one or the other.

    So I apologize to You and all at DiamondCS and anyone Else if I caused any
    unintentional slit or offense.

    With the warmest of Respect and Regards,
    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:

    Your good intentions are known, don't worry. Thanks for clarifying further! No need for apologies but accepted of course.
    Now up to a happy encrypted messaging!

    yup i like the fact its secure for chat

    cryptol suit is good so i can hide my organized crime files

    for example i use 3 programes to hide my files from the goverment lol

    just kiding

    but i thought about it and you can

    i can use winrar and CryptoSuite and another awsome programe

    with these 3 programs with exe pasword protection i cant be touched

    CryptoSuite adds a rare encryption thats not knowen very well

    this in it self adds more security

    if they can by pass 1 which is doubtful cause my files are layerd with 3 layers of encryption and the first layer is nearly imposiable to crack and thats even if you can find it lol

    second layer is CryptoSuite not very well knowen so they have there work cut out fr them

    third is winrar easy to crack but thats mainly for me just incase i forget the password lol

    Perhaps we can take this further!

    How is CS handy when used together with email?

    With pgp this is fully automatic, but I cannot figure out a smart way to use this in email (POP3)

    In other words, hoe can I crypt my text in an email, pop3 or html?

    Future feature on the wishlist.

    At the moment you would have to attach encrypted files and let the receiver know about the password. But that will change at a certain time.
