Confidant Mail is an open-source non-SMTP cryptographic email system
optimized for large file attachments. It has its own client, server, and
protocol. It uses GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) for content encryption and
authentication, and TLS 1.2 with ephemeral keys for transport encryption.
It supports unlimited attachments (>4GB) and forwarding with signature
intact. Kademlia or DNS is used for key lookup. TOR and I2P anonymity is
optional. Servers operate in replicated pairs. You can use your existing
email address and GPG key.
There is a Windows installer and automatic client configuration, so a
Windows user can be online in under five minutes. Linux and MacOS users
will have to install some prerequisites. The site has a test server pair
online so you can try the system out.
