comment What voip client support manual encryption?
I understand. First of all, my answer was given in Feb 2012, well-before the NSA involvement with Microsoft and other companies were discovered. Second, the vast majority of SIP clients not only do not provide encryption by default, they don't even support it. Third - the question was about clients that support encryption for voice data. The answer I gave still answers this question. I still think Skype is safer than (by-default unencrypted) SIP. And I also gave a link to alternatives to Skype. Whether or not you can trust those implementations more is beyond the scope of the question imho.

It's safer than SIP, because SIP is completely unencrypted by default. With SIP, you don't need to be the NSA to sniff data. Almost anybody can do it.

very clever suggestion with this enhanced (and efficient) padding scheme! Thanks again Thomas.

comment TLS: RC4 or not RC4?
...now I also wonder if the browser/plugin can add some random padding to help against this RC4 bias in TLS? (I've created a separate question for it)
