    Building an encrypted calendar is at the top of our to-do list right now as we desperately need a solution to schedule and share calendar entries securely ourselves. However, first, we have to finish the new client to push it our of beta and update the Tutanota Android and iOS apps so that you can use your encrypted mailbox with very good speeds and many more features on all your devices. Once we are done with that, we will build the encrypted calendar.

    Thank you very much for your continuous support.

    The ability to share and keep a secure group calendar would be nice. Mine, theirs, ours but limited to the group members.

    Thank you all for your feedback. Please let us explain in more detail why we don’t plan to add pgp-support at the moment:

    Current encryption standards like pgp and S/MIME have several issue that we plan to address with Tutanota. These standards do not support forward secrecy and are not resistant to attacks from quantum computers.

    In addition, it is important to us that the subject line in emails is also encrypted. That’s why we have developed a solution that is also based on recognized algorithms (RSA and AES) and that automatically encrypts the subject, the content and the attachments. In the future, we plan to upgrade these algorithms to quantum-resistant ones that also support forward secrecy.

    We also see the importance that Tutanota needs to be interoperable with other encryption solutions. We will develop an API so that Tutanota users can communicate with users of other…

    The more interoperability the better. If you can create a service which can painlessly and securely exchange messages with the openpgp universe and their various keyservers including hushmail and startmail etc. And then if it would work with smime, protonmail etc you will have created a desireable product and performed a service for freedom. Connect as many islands as possible.

    Interoperability, along with ease of use, is a huge problem in secure communication. There are several "islands" Tutanota, Hushmail, Protonmail, Silent Circle, various PGP and S/MIME, Startmail, etc. (Telegram, TextSecure (WhatsApp), Wickr,...) but few of them can communicate with each other. If you can connect them together the sum is much greater than the parts. I have correspondents in the various islands, but no secure mail gets sent because they are often in different ones.
