This extension is a RSA Encryption Extension in Beta Testing
RSA MESSAGE ENCRYPTION-
This is an opensource project that started as a school project, it is hosted on github! Help us make it better: https://github.com/PigBoT/ragingDipsticks
1- After you install the extension, browse to a new page (or refresh any existing page).
2- Click the button to pull down the encryption drawer.
3- Type in any passphrase you desire, this passphrase will generate (but not store) a public and private RSA key that is unique to that password.(MAKE SURE NOT TO TYPO OR FORGET THIS PHRASE!)
4- Click on the "Share your key" button. A dialogue box will open with your public key. Click on "Copy" and then send this key to people who want to send you messages!
Sending message instructions:
1- In order to send a message to someone, you have to have their public key first. They can send it to you by following the instructions above. Once you receive their public key you need to save it to your "Friends"
2- Click on "Add Friend", Specify their name, optionally an email, and paste the public key they gave you here. Click "Save Changes" and they will appear in your "Friend List"
3- Click their name and start typing! The encrypted message appears on the right. Send it to them and they'll be able to decrypt it with their secret passphrase.
Receiving Message Instructions:
1- When someone sends you a message it will be in encrypted form. Simply paste this into the left pane and it will be decrypted into the second pane. [IF YOU TYPO'D OR HAVE FORGOTTEN YOUR ORIGINAL PASSPHRASE THIS WILL NOT WORK!]
EMAIL BUTTON, The email button is linked to your default mail client, ie Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Gmail (when configured) etc.
COPY/FILL BUTTON, this button will copy the message in the right panel. The text will change to "Fill" if it can detect a message window (for example https://www.facebook.com/messages/).
