The President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, has ordered the Federal Security Service (FSB) to produce "encryption keys" to decrypt all data on the internet, and the FSB has two weeks to do it, Meduza reports. The head of the FSB, Alexander Bortnikov, is responsible for accomplishing such a task. "The new 'anti-terrorist' laws require all 'organizers of information distribution' that add 'additional coding' to transmitted electronic messages to provide the FSB with any information necessary to decrypt those messages," reports Meduza. "It's still unclear what information exactly online resources are expected to turn over, given that all data on the internet is encoded, one way or another, and in many instances encryption keys for encrypted information simply don't exist." cont Slashdot


Good luck, my encryption changes with every bit/byte/etc sent. You can't just have one key to unlock it as each ...... is different. What they usually do is scoop up the outgoing data for collection later at the exit points, as well as copy all data going in. (redundancy). Sharing an ip with tons of other people makes data correlation not really feasible since there is so much traffic going in and out. They may have it unencrypted on the exit, but which one of the millions of users is it since thousands share the same ip and often the data is sent from server 1 to server 2 then onto the route mixed?
