More secure!

As someone who works on an email client, I’m interested in making my communications more secure. So, with the assistance of Ludovic and Gozer, I got a client certificate that would allow me to sign and encrypt my messages. (Check out the envelope and lock in the image below.)

Most of the time, I’ll probably just sign my messages – after all, that’s what I’ve set it up to do by default – but it’s nice to know that if there’s something I need to encrypt, that option is now available to me.
