Although diaspora* supports encrypted communication, it is no real end-to-end encryption. Mailvelope is a browser plugin available for Chrome and Firefox which makes e2e encryption easy to use. Mailvelope uses PGP encrypted messages and is completely transparent to diaspora* as the messages are saved and federated like every other message. To enable Mailvelope support in posts and private messages, however, some auxilary coding in diaspora* is required. This is an optional feature, so people are not required to use Mailvelope when they don’t want to use e2e encryption.
What do you think abou that feature? Should it be implemented?
