According to Revista poca, the Brazilian government's e-mail platform, which will use the postal infrastructure to bring “more security” to Brazilian users, has already been named and is being implemented.
"The tool will be called Digital Messaging and it is the plan for early users to create their accounts from the end of the first half of 2014," says the publication.
With Digital Messaging, Telecommunications Minister Paulo Bernardo believes that Brazilian users will rely on more security against the surveillance system managed by US security agencies.
However, to provide 100% data protection, users should only exchange messages between service accounts. When sending emails to any other address, encryption is no longer used.
The government is still studying a business model for the platform, which may be through a paid plan, partnerships with other companies or even offering advertising.
