"end-to-end" typically refers to #e2e #encryption (the only true form of #privacy ... nobody in the middle can decrypt)

Now it's being spun as a pro- #surveillance buzzword/term

#MI5 chief asks tech firms for 'exceptional access' to encrypted #messages


source: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/feb/25/mi5-chief-asks-tech-firms-for-exceptional-access-to-encrypted-messages
Parker called on the tech firms to “use the brilliant technologists you’ve got” to answer a question: “Can you provide end-to-end encryption but on an exceptional basis – exceptional basis – where there is a legal warrant and a compelling case to do it, provide access to stop the most serious forms of harm happening?”

CoyIM is a standalone XMPP chat client with a focus on safety and security. It has built-in support for Tor, OTR and TLS. The Tor support allows users to become anonymous when chatting, OTR makes end-to-end encryption of communication possible, and TLS adds another layer of encryption for communication with chat servers. These features are core parts of the application: they are not plugins or extras in any way.” – Nice!

cons: not yet audited and without support for MUC (multi-user chat).

More about CoyIM by Ola Bini here, and official website for downloads. Recommended XMPP service provider: https://dismail.de/

Apple killed E2E encryption two years ago! And they didn't tell anyone!

When Apple spoke privately to the FBI about its work on phone security the following year, the end-to-end encryption plan had been dropped, according to the six sources. Reuters could not determine why exactly Apple dropped the plan.

“Legal killed it, for reasons you can imagine,” another former Apple employee said he was told, without any specific mention of why the plan was dropped or if the FBI was a factor in the decision.

That person told Reuters the company did not want to risk being attacked by public officials for protecting criminals, sued for moving previously accessible data out of reach of government agencies or used as an excuse for new legislation against encryption.

It will also be able to #simultaneously break all existing #cryptographic keys while setting the stage for #uncrackable quantum #encryption. Exactly this point is why many nations--led by the #U.S. and #China--have taken a strong #interest in quantum computing.

Tutanota and EasyGPG

Bad news about Tutanota and what it means to us.


https://www.reddit.com/r/tutanota/comments/dven2n/re_german_court_orders_open_source_everything/

Apparently, the German government can force Tutanota to give them unencrypted email sent and received by a given account after they receive a court order to do so. Tutanota makes it easy to send unencrypted email if you choose, so this really does mean something.

However, the encrypted email sent with Tutanota is encrypted and decrypted in the browsers of the sender and receiver, so these court orders can not be used to see encrypted email.

Tutanota issues regular reports (linked to in the Reddit discussion) about the court orders they receive.

I have a Tutanota account that I use for EasyGPG. It is mentioned in EasyGPG's built-in Help.

When I use Tutanota, I encrypt with EasyGPG, in addition to any encryption by Tutanota. I do the same with... Show more...
