    Anyone used this service or have any input?

    I like the fact that it wont make you load any java apples or anything like that, but im not sure how secure eleptic curve encryption is, and that your password is only a pin code?

    Re: PrivateSky (HTML 5 Elliptic curve encryption)

    Elliptic curve cryptography is usually said to be the next generation of cryptographic algorithms, and generally considered a replacement of the traditional RSA multiplicative group modulo-a-big-prime algorithm. The U.S. National Security Agency has endorsed ECC.

    PrivateSky uses a software based multi-factor authentication solution they call SkyPin, which in itself is many times and in many ways more secure than the traditional username and password scheme. They posted a white paper here http://www.privatesky.me/storage/documents/SkyPin-white-paper.pdf

    It all looks very interesting; all very state of the art. The company and the team look like solid too.
