Submission + - Twitter Buys Moxie Marlinspike's Crypto Startup (forbes.com)

Sparrowvsrevolution writes: Twitter has confirmed that it's acquiring Whisper Systems, the mobile encryption startup founded by hacker and security researcher Moxie Marlinspike. Marlinspike has built some of the most noteworthy tools in applied cryptography over the last few years, including the encrypted calling app Redphone, the hardened Android OS WhisperCore, and Convergence, a system for fixing the broken SSL certificate authority system. Twitter won't yet say how it plan to integrate Marlinspike or his products.
