Public Key

Do you want the NSA (or Google, or your ISP) reading your email? Of course not! Do you want to simultaneously frustrate David Cameron? Hells, yes! Fortunately, you can encrypt your mail, using a tool that's a wee faff to set up, but very easy once you get going! Mailvelope lets you encrypt or sign your email, even if you use a web interface. Those of you using hotmail or gmail, this is the encryption tool for you.

You're going to have to click through to the howto page, as the route to the configuration menu is somewhat non-idiomatic for firefox. However, once you get going, encrypting is dead easy.

Once you get started, we'll need to exchange public keys. What's that, you ask? EFF answers all your questions about this. This kind of encryption is the kind that Edward Snowden swears by, so it really does work and EFF's description is very readable.

UPDATE (7 Feb 2015): If you have trouble decrypting, make sure your version is up to date.

Ok, now that we're clear on that, allow me to present to you my public key:
