I haven't posted here in years, but I heard something today that prompted me to come here and share it with all of you.
I work in IT, managing the software and processes for a non-profit agency. We work with an outside vendor who manages most of our hardware.
During an off-the-cuff conversation today with one of their guys, he mentioned to me that one of his friends is working on a project for the
Government of the USA.
The plan is to create an encrypted email protocol that doesn't work on Port 25. It's apparently for an internal system, though I don't know for
what agency. I'm not even sure he knows. I won't claim to know enough about email protocols to understand how something like this would work, but I
trust the source implicitly.
I figured I would bring this to the ATS crowd to see if anyone here had any ideas or thoughts on how a system like this would work and what it would
be for. Maybe it's a lot less significant than he made it sound, but stuff like this is outside my area of expertise.
