-====== Voice Communication Through The Cryptohippie Network ====== 
- 
- 
-==== Can I speak anonymously with my friends using Cryptohippie?​ ==== 
- 
- 
-Yes, and those comversations will be both encrypted and anonymous. You can speak anonymously via your computer (like Skype, but without the surveillance system) or even via your smart phone. 
- 
- 
-The system functions more like chat than a telephone, but it is very easy to use, eother on a computer or a smart phone. 
- 
- 
-==== What is the difference between encrypted and anonymous? ==== 
- 
- 
-The two critical factors for secure communications are the //content// and the //context// of your communications. Here's what that means: 
- 
- 
-**Content** <font 9pt/​arial;;#​000000;;#​ffffff>:​ What is said. The text of an email, for example, or the transcript of a phone conversation. Content can be protected with  // encryption // .</​font> ​ 
- 
- 
-**Context** <font 9pt/​arial;;#​000000;;#​ffffff>:​ Who communicated with whom, how often, and so on.</​font>​ Context can be proected with an //​anonymity//​ network. 
- 
- 
-    * An encrypted conversation can be seen by outsiders, but not understood. 
-    * The participants in an anonymous conversation cannot be known, but the conversation may be understood. 
- 
- 
-//The Cryptohippie system provides both encryption and anonymity. //  
- 
- 
-==== Is context really that important? ==== 
- 
- 
-It is. 
- 
- 
-If a data thief knows who you talk to, how often, and for what periods of time, he or she can learn a great deal about you, your business, your friends, and so on.<font 9pt/​arial;;#​000000;;#​ffffff>​You may have heard this talked about in the news recently, under the name of</​font>​ //<font 9pt/​arial;;#​000000;;#​ffffff>​metadata</​font>​ // <font 9pt/​arial;;#​000000;;#​ffffff>​. (Which means “data about data.”)</​font> ​ 
- 
- 
-<font 9pt/​arial;;#​000000;;#​ffffff>​While the content of a message is obviously useful to a data thief, good metadata – the context of the messages – can be equally important, and often more important. Just knowing</​font>​ //<font 9pt/​arial;;#​000000;;#​ffffff>​about</​font>​ // <font 9pt/​arial;;#​000000;;#​ffffff>​a set of communications can give the data thief all he really needs to know.</​font> ​

- 
-==== How do I use this system? ==== 
- 
- 
-Follow the instructions below, but first please understand two things: 
- 
- 
-1. This applies only to calls between you and other Cryptohippie users. 
- 
- 
-2. We have not yet integrated user accounts. That means that everyone makes up their own names for now. We will integrate everything eventually, but we didn't want to keep you waiting.
