In his opinion, nothing good like this will not come to an end.
Creator. I am sure that the FSB is simply trying to increase their influence.
The Creator of Telegram, Pavel Durov considers questionable statements of the FSB of organizing terrorist attacks in the St. Petersburg metro with Messager. In his opinion, weakened the encryption will undermine the national security of the country.
A comment he posted on his page Vkontakte, Russian media reported.
“The time occurrence of the information that almost three months ago, Telegram alleged to have been used in the preparation of a terrorist attack, raises questions. Sadly, when Russian special services are exploiting this tragedy as a pretext to strengthen its influence and control over the population”, – he said.
Durov wrote that such means of communication like Telegram and WhatsApp Messager encode the information of its users, and cannot become dangerous only for potential terrorists.
The principle of end-to-end or end-to-end encryption, the same protection and at the same time threatens all the users, he said. “The rejection of irreversible encryption in a particular country will make tens of millions of people defenseless against hacker attacks and blackmail corrupt officials. Moreover, the weakening of encryption in all messeger will undermine the national security of the country as a whole, as in this case, foreign intelligence agencies inevitably will also get access to the whole correspondence of citizens of Russia “, – wrote Durov.
The Creator of the Messager also added that the refusal of the coding and providing access of power to the correspondence of ordinary citizens won’t diminish the risk of terrorist attacks: because, as demonstrated by the events in Paris to attack a single phone, and the usual CMC – without any code.
Recall, Roskomnadzor intends in a few days to block the Messager Telegram. This will happen if his owner Pavel Durov does not provide data for the registration of a company in the register of the organizers of disseminating information.
