Lavabit, the privacy-centric email provider Edward Snowden reportedly used, is set to make a comeback.
Ladar Levison made headlines two years ago when he unexpectedly shut down the encrypted email service that he built from the ground up over a decade, after federal agents demanded he turn over his master encryption keys. The feds were likely after one user -- thought to be Snowden, the former NSA contractor turned whistleblower -- but this has never been formally confirmed as the case remains under seal. Concerned that the feds would go beyond the scope of the warrant, he shut down the site to prevent them "conducting surveillance on everyone," he said.
Glad to see that this project is still alive and kicking. It's been a while since we had any news on it and I was starting to wonder if the project failed. I'll be giving it a try as soon as it comes out and I'm sure that many users here will also jump in.
