Privacy Platform - Encryption vs. Surveillance
Who is winning the cat and mouse game?
Recent reports have revealed that the NSA has access to encryption keys and has paid tech companies to introduce backdoors in encryption protocols. The Privacy Platform on the 15th of October is dedicated to the question whether or not (certain) encryption is worthwhile, and what is the state-of-the-art in encryption and surveillance techniques. The purpose of the meeting is to get better insight into encryption techniques and the possibilities of secret services to intercept and read encrypted messages.
