Project Ägypten (Free Software Sphinx-Clients)Please note the successor: Project Ägypten2: Improving Free Software Sphinx Clients
The Sphinx project launched by German authorities aims to improve secure email exchange. The projects technological base is the protocol 'TeleTrust e.V. MailTrusT Version 2'. This includes the standards S/MIME, X.509v3 and others.
Aims and ResultsWithin this project it is an explicit goal to produce sustainable improvements for the free software desktop and no quickly assembled code.
