Not even a week after the terrorist attack in Westminster, the Tories are already making noises about censoring the internet "at source" to stop "extremist views" from ever being uploaded in the first place, as well as signalling an interest in unencrypted messaging systems a la Brazil.
Given that WhatsApp is end-to-end encrypted, I'm not sure this is possible. The Wikileaks CIA leaks the other week suggested that SSL is only secure as long as either end points aren't compromised, and this can only be achieved (so far) on a small scale by carefully targeting specific communications rather than a dragnet over all encrypted messages.
The only plausible way I can see them doing this is by holding a secure secondary public key and encrypt the key again - but this opens up a whole new can of worms, not least because it introduces an immediate weakness.
A government minister exhibits a fundamental lack of understanding on how encryption works and the inherent problems with backdoors - I'm shocked.
BTW, I'm sure some have noticed but worth clarifying Dosbods is https only, to avoid any potential man-in-the-middle type attacks.
