British authorities are closely working with tech companies to decrypt the digital chatter between suspected militants.
Amber Rudd, Britain’s interior minister has disclosed that the country is making significant headway in decrypting the encrypted messages of militants thanks to its collaboration with tech companies
“We are making good progress with the companies who have put in place end-to-end encryption, some of them are being more constructive that others but we will continue to build on that,” said Rudd on BBC television.
He went on to add, “The area that I am most concerned about is the internet companies who are continuing to publish the hate publications, the hate material that is contributing to radicalizing people in this country,” Rudd said.
Earlier Britain has complained that tech companies have failed to disclose information of messages belonging to suspected militants. Tech companies, including WhatsApp, has said, they are unable to break the end-to-end encryption.
