Russia claims it can collect encryption keys

Russia claims it can collect encryption keys Russia now requires (or at least appears to require) that local internet providers offer backdoor access to their customers encrypted messages and it conveniently has a way to make that happen. Its Federal Security Service now claims that it can collect encryption keys giving it the chance to crack communications that would otherwise remain private. In theory this means that even locked down messaging services like Telegram or WhatsApp arent safe from prying eyes. The question is whether or not Russian officials have as much power as they claim. President Putin only ordered the FSB to develop an encryption key collection technique two weeks earlier how did it manage to do that so quickly when surveillance agencies around the world have wanted this for years? The FSB doesnt say how its technique works (to no ones surprise) so its difficult to know how realistic or wide-reaching its anti-encryption technology might be. The one certainty? You wont want to assume your chats are safe while in Russia especially if youre going to criticize its government.
