Testing or Certification?
The problem all these encryption technologies face is that there's no way for the average user to be certain that they're truly secure. The NSA has made it impossible to trust even accepted encryption protocols. And even if the technology turns out to be sound, there are so many other ways security can be compromised (e.g. a listening device in a room) that it hardly seems worth it to try to keep electronic data secret. A determined government-funded adversary will defeat whatever off-the-shelf solution you come up with.

Silent Circle and Geeksphone recently launched a Blackphone for providing encryption services that was a hug impact in the communications security industry specially on NSA. If you're privacy and security focused like me, you have got to have this.

Re: Testing or Certification?
we can protect our identities, data and remain private by using a PureVPN service. A Virtual Private Network is a network technology that creates a secure network connection over a public network such as the Internet.

best vpn services
With all that's happening in the world, we really need to protect our privacy. VPN is really important. However, be very careful in choosing the right VPN as there are VPNs that claim they don't log your information but the truth is they do. The key is to look for the best vpn services in the market today.
