You may want to peruse this resource at your leisure.

Or not.

That Internet thingy is going to continue to be just as secure and available for private/public commo as it is today.

Same with your mobile voice and data networks.

Very appropriate comic for that post.

Here's a quick way to improve the security of your crypto and this is VERY important so you need to have a pad of paper and a pencil handy. Do you have that paper and pencil? Ok, I'll be back later...

I don't need a manual on how cryptology works - I need a crypto program that works and that can and will be used by those who need to encrypt/decrypt messages and files to each other securely.

Anyone out there found a program that works on both files and e-mail?

For TPaine. The good folks at NSA will be more than happy to provide you and your friends with a really nice crypto program. Rest assured that you will be able to send and receive encrypted emails without fear of anyone reading your 'private' messages.

My trust issues have been validated too many times.
I have no one to send messages to or receive them from. I'm the fly in the ointment, the monkey in the wrench. I am legion.

gpg suite

as to cryptanalysis - unless some tool is using a caesar cipher for tactical comms, this sport is straight played.

any crypto more modern than WWII enigma machines is NOT going to be broken with pen and paper. bank on it.

anonymity - vs DF equipment or here on the interwebs - is more important than crypto ATM.

What anonymous at 1722 yesterday said. No cryptography more modern than child's play is going to be broken with pencil and paper. "It has been estimated that if every computer in the world was employed to decrypt a PGP message encrypted with a long key, it would take longer than the age of the universe."

Much more likely is this XKCD cartoon from a posting I did on secure communications without the 'net. (note the link goes directly to the cartoon, not my writing).
