comment Would DLL hijacking work with load-time linking?
I remember that hijacking frameworks used to hijack the DLL loading code system wide so the answer would be YES. madshi.net would be an example to that AFAIK.

@lucaskauffman they could, but they are not forced. It's merely for the purpose of convenience. If you use such a browser based system, wouldn't it be a sin to keep them on local storage or have the user to paste them in the app everytime he uses it?

@markc.wallace I didn't know that, I live in Germany and it's not a crime here.

Are there any services around who already beat Scenario 2 and 3? Thank you again for the detailed answer

Thank you very much sir for your detailed answer. My basic motivation is to build something as (technically) simple as possible that would provide the (very) basics of encryption to people who would otherwise have this stuff flying around unencrypted. I agree mostly on all points, especially on Rubber Hose crypto, which is obvious in hindsight. But if you take for example a person living in Iran using this system, wouldn't he be better off(in technical terms) if we keep his keys in Swiss and he is accessing them over TLS?

@mark ah thank you. Where can I get information I can trust about this topic?

@mark OK, fair point but isn't it more likely that the computer of a person is compromised than the server? It's a thin red line between convinience and security.

@xander, thank you, how about a model where encryption is done on the client side and keys are kept encrypted on the server and are only transferred via TLS like johnyfittizio described?

More secure than unencrypted e-mail services. If the keys are transferred only on a encrypted connection, where is the problem than?
