|Re: [PLUG] encryption|
NSA openly admits one of the goals of its new huge utah data center is to be able to crack 256 bit AES. I gotta imagine PGP is on that hitlist too : http://nsa.gov1.info/utah-data-center/
Most of the commercial products are not. My understanding is that the mere fact of encryption gets their attention.
Interesting question: Our company is required, by a number of government agencies, to encrypt communications for HIPAA compliance. Philadelphia CBH uses PGP; the rest don't care which. We use a less robust SPX system for those because it
was the best compromise which I could find between security and ease of use (because sender and recipient buy in is most essential). I am sure there is some back door for not only the NSA, but other government agencies. So what does that say about the efficacy
