Zfone makes your VoIP phone secure

Interesting project.

I heard about it via an article in "The Economist" that Skype is already so encrypted that spy agencies have difficulties with it (only the NSA has the means to crack it). And that Zfone would be even more difficult to crack.

Zfone is a new secure VoIP phone software product which lets you make secure encrypted phone calls over the Internet.
Windows XP, Vista, Mac OS X, or Linux. Zfone runs on Windows XP and Vista, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Zfone will encrypt audio and video for Apple iChat calls on Mac OS X. Zfone has been tested with these VoIP clients: X-Lite, Gizmo, XMeeting, Google Talk VoIP client, Yahoo Messenger's VoIP client (for audio), and SJphone. It does not work with Skype.

I wonder if we could support it at some point in OGE via the sdk:

It had a dual license (GPL & commercial) but it seems we could discuss with them as we are an open-source project and it would anyway be a plugin:
