Encryption App ‘Signal’ Fights Censorship With a Clever Workaround
[Previously OTF-supported] <strong>Open Whisper Systems</strong>, which created and maintains Signal, announced that it’s added a feature to its Android app that will allow it to sidestep censorship in Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, where it was blocked just days ago. Android users can simply update the app to gain unfettered access to the encryption tool, according to Open Whisper Systems founder Moxie Marlinspike, and an iOS version of the update is coming soon. - Andy Greenberg, Wired

Safety number updates - @whispersystems
Safety numbers allow Signal users to verify the privacy of their communication with a contact, either by comparing a number or by scanning a single QR code. We recently introduced this new design as an update to Signal's previous UX, which we felt was no longer adequate for what people had come to expect from Signal. Let's look at the safety numbers design in more detail, then go over what's new in this release. - Open Whisper Systems

Signal’s protocol gets glowing reviews in first security audit - @HowellONeill
"Signal is widely considered the gold standard of secure encrypted messaging apps but, until today, it hasn’t been subject to a fine-toothed audit. But the technology passed a major test Tuesday after an international team of security researchers gave the messaging platform’s security glowing reviews in its first ever formal security audit." - Patrick O'Neill, CyberScoop. The OTF-funded and Open Whisper Systems-built Signal protocol has been adopted by WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Google Allo, among others.

A Formal Security Analysis of the Signal Messaging Protocol #research
Through the International Association for Cryptologic Research, researchers "...conduct the first security analysis of Signal’s Key Agreement and Double Ratchet as a multi-stage key exchange protocol," finding "...no major flaws in the design."
