Less than a week after announcing their partnership, Lavabit and Silent Circle have taken to Kickstarter for their latest initiative, the Dark Mail Alliance, TechCrunch reports. The group is seeking exactly $196,608 to fund their Dark Mail protocol as well as a compatible client, and backers have already donated nearly $45,000 as of this writing. The campaign also sheds some light on what Dark Mail actually intends to be — a “newly developed messaging protocol… designed to provide end-to-end encryption of both the message itself and the email in transit.”
