P.S. Paradoxically, the most secure communications on the Internet
could IMHO nowadays be done by Mafias and other resourceful criminals.
For they could open business of Internet cafes and callshops and
conveniently exchange their encrypted secret messages via e.g. posting
to and in the worst imaginable case allege anything
related to their IP-addresses to be from their (unknown) customers. In
countries like GB, where the authorites could demand surrendering of
encryption keys from holders of encrypted files, they could also
without worries keep such files on their computers and, when demanded,
claim these to be leftovers of their customers, thus avoiding the files
being decrypted.
