First version launched today: https://www.eff.org/secure-messaging-scorecard
This was a collaboration between tech advisers (primarily Peter Eckersley
and myself) and a good team of people with experience in journalism and
activism and there were necessarily some compromises made. The primary
goals here were:
(a) simplicity for users (and journalists) to draw some conclusions about
what's out there right now and we had to make a lot of compromises to keep
things simple for end-users to understand.
(b) reasonable carrots for some of the traditional messaging apps to add
security features, get audits, and publish source code.
Hopefully we will be launching a more detailed version next year with many
more evaluation criteria but would be curious to hear feedback on this
version from other folks working in this space.
