Claims to use "the new encryption algorithm SHA-7,
faster and more secure than any other technology
now known for encryption of data."
But then "SHA-7 allows to generate a unique
"message digest" of the content of a message",
So it is a hash, not an encryption algorithm.
They compare performance to SHA-2 and do
not even mention SHA-3. Perhaps they missed
This does not inspire confidence.
