Google Sends E2EMail Encrypted Email Code into Open Source

Google has always been good about sharing the wealth of information it has, including when it comes to donating it all to the open source community. This time, the E2EMail, an experimental end-to-end encryption system was donated. 

E2EMail was developed by Google and built on a JavaScript crypto library developed internally. It presents a way to integrate OpenPGP into Gmail via a Chrome Extension. The cleartext of messages is kept exclusively on the client. 

"E2EMail in its current incarnation uses a bare-bones central keyserver for testing, but the recent Key Transparency announcement is crucial to its further evolution. Key discovery and distribution lie at the heart of the usability challenges that OpenPGP implementations have faced. Key Transparency delivers a solid, scalable, and thus practical solution, replacing the problematic web-of-trust model traditionally used with PGP," reads Google's Softpedia News / Security
