Here are a couple of really nice tools I was linked to today Whisper Systems free encrypted communication tools

Red Phone

  • Like privacy? Secure your calls for free with RedPhone. It’s that simple.
  • RedPhone provides end-to-end encryption for your calls, securing your conversations so that nobody can listen in.
  • RedPhone uses your normal phone number to make and receive calls, so you don’t need yet another identifier.
  • Use the default system dialer and contacts apps to make calls as you normally would.
  • RedPhone will give you the opportunity to upgrade to encrypted calls whenever the person you’re calling also has RedPhone installed.
  • RedPhone calls are encrypted end-to-end, but function just like you’re used to.
  • Free and Open Source, enabling anyone to verify its security by auditing the code.
  • Uses wifi or data, not your plan’s voice minutes.

Text Secure

  • Like privacy? Secure your SMS/MMS communication with TextSecure. It’s that simple.
  • TextSecure encrypts your text messages over the air and on your phone. It’s almost identical to the normal text messaging application, and is just as easy to use.
  • TextSecure Provides:
  • A secure and private replacement for the default text messaging app.
  • All messages are encrypted locally, so if your phone is lost or stolen, your messages will be safe.
  • Messages to other TextSecure users are encrypted over the air, protecting your communication in transit.
  • TextSecure is Free and Open Source, enabling anyone to verify its security by auditing the code.
  • TextSecure is the only Android private SMS/MMS messenger replacement that uses open source peer-reviewed cryptographic protocols to keep your messages safe. Rather than simply pretending to hide your texts by putting them in another place, TextSecure uses cryptography to ensure that they remain truly secure.
