SN 827: REvil's Clever Crypto

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

another great show! crypto scheme reminds me of how encrypted chat could be backdoored by attaching to it encrypted copies of its private key for every entity that wants to snoop on it e.g. one for the fbi encrypted with the fbi public key, one for china encrypted with chinas public key etc. in this case it shows only one of the many entities involved needs to break down and release a private key to unhinder the encrypted files.
