New App Offers Military-Level Encryption for Phone Calls, Texts, Email

For the ultimate in privacy, a soon-to-be-released app will allow you to make secure encrypted calls all over the world, using existing 3G, 4G, and WiFi networks. This new app, which is said to bring military-level encryption to your iPhone, comes from two Navy SEALs and a legendary cryptographer, and provides you with a virtual ‘safe room’ for communication.
The Silent Circle app uses the ZRTP protocol for encryption, from Phil Zimmermann, the man behind the PGP protocol, with the iPhone being used to encrypt everything locally, so no insecure data leaves the device. According to their site, the app also enables secure video chats, emails, text messages, as well as something straight out of Mission Impossible: self-destructing texts and pictures.
