Name removed to make this a little less flamish:
But really, PGP is the answer you're looking for. :)

I hate to say this, but this is the kind of thing NSA shills say: Point
out some magnificent foobar that certainly will not be deployed, focus
on it, and hope that nothing merely good will get traction.

I have some ideas about why PGP fails so miserably, but that doesn't
really matter. Whatever the reason is, PGP has a twenty-year history of
disuse, so I'm fairly sure that in five years, only a very few people
will use it and its users will not be able to hide in a crowd.
