Bitmask

Encrypted communication for mere mortals(superheroes welcome, too).

Bitmask is an application to provide easy and secure encrypted communication. You can choose among several different service providers or start your own. Currently, Bitmask supports encrypted internet (VPN) with encrypted email coming soon.

Bitmask is a VPN client using OpenVPN with automatic configuration. Just enter your account information from any compatible service provider and away you go.
