Freenigma (PGP) firefox extension for your GMail

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Freenigma is a Firefox extension that adds PGP support to GMail. You install the Firefox extension and when you are about to write an email in GMail, it rewrites the page code to add the PGP support.

Using public-key cryptography is generally cumbersome when you take in account the management of the public keys of the other people you communicate with, and also keeping around your private key to decrypt the mails you receive. Freenigma, currently at beta, helps alleviate these problems.

I would like to see a security researcher look into the implementation of Freenigma, and especially for any sources of vulnerability.
