Academic Signature

An open source program for elliptic curve cryptography 
using a wxWidgets GUI  ( ecc digital signatures, ecc encryption and timestamps)

Academic Signature is to be used as a "Swiss Army Knife" of strong cryptography - you trigger all operations manually, nothing is done without your consent. You can use it to digitally sign documents, to produce timestamps of digital documents and to encrypt files for recipients public keys.
Intelligent lay people can install it, understand it and use it. Yet it offers the strongest cryptographic protection available today (up to 1032 bit ecc, symmetric ciphers up to 4096 bit blocklength and keylength).
It is a self contained public key cryptography program, which minimizes dependency on NSA influenced products and standards. 

Using strong cryptography for your data in transit can be a building block in defending your privacy and our freedom.

Academic Signature is my project
(Prof.Dr. Michael Anders) and has been online since 2011. 
Its design principles and my goals differ starkly from the design principles and goals adhered to in the commercial IT Security sector. 
Neither the project Academic Signature nor
my political statement on this page are affiliated with FH Wedel's newly introduced graduate program in IT Security.
