UK’s Internet may be Monitored and Decrypted by Government
United Kingdom’s Internet service providers may move to monitoring the connections of customers. Intercepting messages to store for one year, from the Home Office’s proposals.
This includes mobile phone companies.
According to Channel 4 News, the government has insisted that the content of messages not be stored.
Under the Home Office proposals, once the Gmail is sent, the ISPs would have to route the data via a government-approved “black box” which will decrypt the message, separate the content from the “header data”, and pass the latter back to the ISP for storage.
Prime Minister, Dominic Raab, said that this would give Britain “the most intrusive surveillance regime in the west,” according to Channel 4 News.
