“Proprietary” crypto of Skype

September 14, 2005

At the message of VOIPsa mailing list, Robert Moskowitz said:

“Some time ago, on the user forum I and another pushed for information
on the skype crypto and beyond ‘AES 256’, we were told that information
is proprietary.

Sorry, I cannot accept proprietary cyrpto. I can understand ‘patent
pending’ or such. But not silence. “

I agree. If Skype insist on its “proprietary” crypto, those enterprises
and professional users, i am afraid, will hesitate to adopt it as their
primary communication tools.
