Pretty Good Privacy is already there. With GnuPG we have a great implementation. But the handling is too complicated for many people. They don't understand.
That's the reason for pEp – pretty Easy privacy. It automates the usage of GnuPG, it automates keymanagement, it encrypts whenever possible while the user just presses “send”. And it's not only (but also) for E-Mail. It's for Whatsapp, Facebook messages, Jabber, and many more.
And the best: when both sides are using a client with the pEp engine, messages are routed through GnuNet avoiding creating a metadata fingerprint.
pEp is Free Software under GPL, even for Microsoft Outlook as client it is Free Software. A preview version was just released and can be tested. Versions for Android, Apple iOS, Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, even browser plugins for Webmailers are being prepared – all peer to peer, encrypting endpoint to endpoint without any central infrastructure.
