[ NNSquad ] Can German Intelligence decrypt PGP/SSH?
Can German Intelligence decrypt PGP/SSH? German Intelligence appears to be claiming the ability to decrypt (at least part of the time) PGP and SSH messages. http://j.mp/KttYVB (golem.de via Google Translate) "The federal government declared that its intelligence agencies generally are able, to decrypt PGP and Secure Shell, at least in part." - - - If true (and there would be many relevant factors, including how long any given decrypt would take) we can assume this capability (or more) is generally available within the intelligence community globally. But it is not clear what's really being described here. Weak key situations? Something else? Disinformation in general? --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (email@example.com): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org Founder: - Data Wisdom Explorers League: http://www.dwel.org - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Lauren's Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren / Twitter: http://vortex.com/t-lauren Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com _______________________________________________ nnsquad mailing list http://lists.nnsquad.org/mailman/listinfo/nnsquad
