    So, if you're technically skilled and at the cost of slight invonvenience, prefer to keep messages actually private and secure - against cryptanalysis, undetectable tampering and someone stealing your keys or plaintext messages with 0-day exploits, this tool is for you.

    One-time-pads, hardware TRNG with whitening, data diodes > OSI layer 1 security. Now also with HMACs with perfect secrecy, some new features including support for multiple contacts, tons of stability updates, protections against reuse of keys and an improved paper. Fully open hardware design and free as in rms software.
