Security Experts from 42 Countries Urge World Leaders to Reject Software Backdoors

20 December 2017

Cyber activists, experts and companies from 42 countries issued an open letter against government plans to weaken encryption and force the use of backdoors.

195 experts, firms and civil-society groups from more than 40 countries signed the letter claiming that people should have the option to use the strongest encryption available without fear that governments will compel access to their communications without due process and respect for human rights.

"Users should have the option to use – and companies the option to provide – the strongest encryption available, including end-to-end encryption, without fear that governments will compel access to the content, metadata, or encryption keys without due process and respect for human rights” - the letter says.

The letter explains that encryption and anonymity provide the privacy and security necessary to ensure the right to freedom of opinion and expression. It rejects government efforts to “mandate insecure encryption algorithms, standards, tools or technologies”.

Trust.Zone VPN provides members with a strong AES-256 encryption. AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is one of the strongest encryption algorithms used in symmetric key cryptography. Because of the 256-Bits length of the key and the number of hashes (14), it takes a long time for a hacker to perform a dictionary attack

As for now, there are no known practical attacks that would allow anyone to read correctly implemented AES encrypted data.
