COMMERCIAL ANONYMOUS REMAILER LAUNCHED

By CBR Staff Writer

San Jose startup Privada Inc (cool-sounding name; pity it’s Portuguese for ‘toilet’) has announced what it claims is the first truly anonymous internet privacy technology. That will raise eyebrows with Usenet veterans, most of whom will remember the now-defunct anon.penet.fi remailer (https://www.penet.fi/). Privada claims its three products – Messaging Incognito, Commerce Incognito and Surf Incognito – allow users to send and receive information over the internet anonymously and securely. The company plans to license its service to ISPs and large corporations, and says that because of its advanced encryption, the service can only be used within the US.
