New crypto systems cannot come from the guys that create standards, they have shown time and again that they cannot be trusted. What is that new invention called "trusted proxy"? Are they serious that we will think about adopting a "standard" like that? (sorry, I can't resist the "scare quotes")

New and good crypto systems will come from people that make and eat their own food as usual. I'm writing a very long e-mail with a proposal about it. I code and you guys tell me where I'm doing something wrong.

But I won't send the proposal before it is well researched and finished, neither will I use this e-mail address for it. I'm still searching an e-mail service that I can trust.
