[liberationtech] Telegraph article on the cracking of satellite phone encryption

I think this should be a lesson to all of us that where there exists anecdotal information about governments ability to crack encryption, we should be sure to err on the side of conservatism when describing the risks of closed technology.

It takes these German researchers 30 minutes to listen to a satphone call with very rudimentary 2011 computer tech.

There is however an error in this article, some Inmarsat phones are definitely broken, specifically the isatphonePro. I've already written the author, let's hope they will correct the article soon.

Our satphone security guide will be published soon, I'll be sure to keep you all updated.
