Creator of Lavabit wants to develop a dark mail project for encrypted email

Ladar Levison, the creator of Lavabit, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his new open-source, dark mail encrypted email project.

The project is looking to raise $196,608 to take the Lavabit source code and turn it into a free and open-source project with the new dark mail protocol. Dark mail is intended to provide a next-generation form of email with end-to-end encryption. If successful, the campaign will include the creation of the first dark mail clients for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS.
