“Scary You Could be Jailed for Running Computer Service” – CryptoSeal Co-Founder

VPN service CryptoSeal followed Lavabit in pulling the plug, fearing running afoul of US authorities. Ryan Lackey, co-founder of the computer firm, told RT about the current climate where people can be put behind bars just for running their businesses.

In August, the highly-encrypted email service Lavabit reportedly used by NSA leaker Edward Snowden went offline after it was ordered by a court to turn over its Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) private key — a cryptographic protocol designed to facilitate communication security over the internet — to the FBI.
