Fascinating read on how the FBI ran Anom encrypted phone company. In particular:
“We wanted to shatter the trust in the encrypted phone industry that catered to criminals.”
The question remaining is: how can we as non-criminals still trust encrypted messengers?
Yes, it’s easy to get all paranoid here. The big question is whether the paranoia is justified, and I don’t expect the answer to turn up any time soon. All we get is a suspicion that there might be more things going on than busting drug cartels.
