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 aren’t safe from prying eyes.
