VkCrypt ­ Encrypting the VK social net’s messenger


Let us introduce our friends that have recently implemented an approach to make chatting in the Vkontakte social net secure, by using the AES encrypting algorithm. This technology ensures that the correspondence is kept privately and remains unavailable to not only providers, but to the VK itself. The encryption is performed on the side of a web browser by a plug­in that is available for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome/Chromium. The plug­in’s open source code is provided by SourceForge.
