Microsoft On July 1st  its first Microsoft Transparency Center, in Redmond.In an attempt to ease the minds of foreign governments that are afraid the US government has inserted backdoors into commercial software. Participating governments will be allowed to review source code for the main products coming out of Redmond, so they can check for backdoors themselves. 

According to Microsoft,Outlook.com is now further protected by Transport Layer Security, or TLS, encryption for both outbound and inbound email. This means that when you send an email to someone, your email is encrypted and thus better protected as it travels between Microsoft and other email providers. Of course, this requires their email service provider to also have TLS support. 

One Drive has now enabled PFS encryption support as well. OneDrive customers now automatically get forward secrecy when accessing OneDrive through onedrive.live.com, our mobile OneDrive application and our sync clients. As with Outlook.com’s email transfer, this makes it more difficult for attackers to decrypt connections between their systems and OneDrive.
