Even strong encryption may be ineffective against NSA

35 sec read

The various Snowden revelations that have been trickling out for a couple of years now all point to the same conclusion: digital spying is a major priority of the NSA and other government agencies. While the majority of the public is well aware of this and have major concerns over it, we may not even have the slightest idea of how deep the conspiracy goes. In an in-depth article, Spiegel breaks down the threats and points to the concept that the NSA may have access to pretty much everything. Everything.

The Snowden documents reveal the encryption programs the NSA has succeeded in cracking, but, importantly, also the ones that are still likely to be secure. Although the documents are around two years old, experts consider it unlikely the agency’s digital spies have made much progress in cracking these technologies. “Properly implemented strong crypto systems are one of the few things that you can rely on,” Snowden said in June 2013, after fleeing to Hong Kong.
