“The only effective way for individuals to protect themselves from Ki theft-enabled surveillance is to use secure communications software, rather than relying on SIM card-based security. Secure software includes email and other apps that use Transport Layer Security (TLS), the mechanism underlying the secure HTTPS web protocol. The email clients included with Android phones and iPhones support TLS, as do large email providers like Yahoo and Google.”
hah hah hah.
““We need to stop assuming that the phone companies will provide us with a secure method of making calls or exchanging text messages,” says Soghoian.”
And don’t assume – unless youare wholly stupid – the “new” Telco “TLS suppliers” are any different to the old Telcos. Real Google, think compromised by design. Read Microsoft, read compromise by praxis.
