It’s exciting to see the RFC finally released, as it’s an important milestone to set ZRTP as the official standard for end-to-end encryption much like PGP has been for emails.
Now any organization in the world will be officially able to implement ZRTP for end-to-end protocol voice encryption
Currently 3 different public implementations of ZRTP protocol exists:
- Philip Zimmermann’s LibZRTP (c code)
- PrivateWave’s ZORG (c++ code / Java code)
- GNU Telephony ZRTP (c++ code / Java code)
Each of them provide different features of the protocol, but most important are known to be interoperable.
A new wave is coming to the voice encryption world, irrupting into a gray area where most of the companies doing phone encryption systems has been implementing custom encryption.
Now a standard has been setup and there are few reasons left to implementing something different.
Today it’s a great day, such kind of technology is now official and also with multiple existing implementation!
Philip, you did it again, my compliments to your pure spirit and determination :-)
