not to mention StartSSL and their free certificates… Well, ok, maybe not
the cleanest and trustworthy thing, but you can still provide the CSR,
meaning you own the key. And they support 4096b with sha2…

Back to Confidant Mail: interesting project, kind of reminds me of
BitMessage, though it seems to be more usable (by far).

Might be interesting to see how it might be linked to something like
Syncthing[1]

Just one thought: as it uses UDP, *traffic* won't go through Tor, right?
