What is Volksverschlüsselung?

The Fraunhofer SIT has launched an initiative in the shape of Volksverschlüsselung to promote the widespread usage of end-to-end encryption among the general public and thus bolster the protection of electronic communications of consumers and businesses. In releasing the Volksverschlüsselung software, the Fraunhofer SIT as developer and Deutsche Telekom AG as infrastructure operator are launching the first free Volksverschlüsselung service.
