Default GNU Free Call starts development, aims to be a Skype alternative

From http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...e-1208549.html

The GNU Project has announced plans for GNU Free Call which will offer secure communications for use by the general public and aims to be as ubiquitous and usable as the proprietary Skype VOIP service.


Unlike Skype, however, this new system will use the peer-to-peer SIP protocol which requires only a simple network. According to the announcement, this will add significantly to the security of communications: there will be no need for any central service provider, no "insecure source secret binary protocols that may have back-doors", and no need for potentially vulnerable network control points.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
