Here's a good article about Zfone, Phil Zimmerman's encryption add-on for SIP softphones. It discusses the good (encryption without the hassle of key exchange, publishing the protocol as an IETF draft), the bad ("picky" and "flaky" Mac beta?), and the ugly (difficult Linux installation, may not remain open for free downloading if Zimmerman gets the venture capital he's seeking). I'm not clear on why the author claims the package is neither open source nor free software - one would have to read the Linux tarball README to find out why he suggests that.
