BitFlip: Plausible Deniability Cipher: Cyber Privacy, Finally

Test Drive BitFlip

Nominal encryption offers privacy only to the extent that the communicating parties are not pressured to release the encryption key. This inherenet weakness, prevented many good people from honest private communication over cyber space. To assure privacy, the parties must be able to provide a plausible alternative message when pressured to reveal the contents of their communication. BitFlip -- a cipher with many outstanding features -- is particularly (though not uniquely) fitted to enable both transmitter and recipient of a cyber message to claim that the captured ciphertext encrypts a plausible message, not the private one it really carries.

Such extreme privacy measures are readily abused, one must admit. Yet, arguably, the cause of innocent and harmless privacy is so important that it is worth the price of helping some wrong headed communication. Besides, many of the 'bad guys' already use such 'deniability cryptography', so it is time that the good guys don't stay behind.

A short explanatory video is presented below.  The technology is covered in two US Patents. The German Bureau of Standards, TÜV confirmed the BitFlip efficacy.
