Martin sound rupture, former IT Director in the Federal Ministry of the Interior, has campaigned in Parliament massively for to encrypt as much communication. A stronger Kryptoregulierung’m not to debate.
A seemingly simple recipe to prevent mass surveillance by intelligence agencies presented Martin sound rupture, IT Director in the Federal Ministry of the Interior on Thursday members of the NSA Investigation Committee of the Bundestag: “simply everything as many data and communication services encrypt.” This “reasonable procedures available that are also safe” were also in the light of the Snowden revelations.
Liberal crypto corner points
There have been discussions about a stricter Kryptoregulierung again and again under the Interior Ministers Otto Schily (SPD), Wolfgang Schäuble and Thomas de Maizière (both CDU), reported the current Deputy of the “digital society Institute”. This man “arguments from both sides heard”. The Liberal crypto corner points of the Federal Government by 1999 but have prevailed and had been confirmed again and again.
That the Government now would introduce a kind of mini-NSA to crack encryption codes with a “central authority for information technology in the area of security” (Zitis), was not a contradiction to his plea, the 50-year-old said after the meeting in an interview with heise online. Law enforcement and the work of the intelligence services must be further possible. Already at that time, one was thinking in the Innenressort always also as content could be tapped with State Trojans to source telecommunications monitor directly on the computer of a suspect before or after decryption.
“We all know that many people communicate unkryptiert”, sound break reported to MPs on his permanent advertising, to introduce crypto phones at least within the Administration about: “every encrypted conversation and each encrypted E-Mail are improving.”
The Federal Government ordered 5000 smartphones and phones normal in similar size according to the Snowden revelations, he said. Resistance to their use be shrunk in parallel despite lower usability. Himself have used always a crypto mobile phone to its service times and achieved in his “essential communication partner”. Parallel, he had a private normal cell phone. The Bundestag get you his IT on their own, but could use framework agreements of the Executive.
Separation of Verizon
The U.S. providers Verizon part still in the information network of the Federal Administration (IFMGA/BVN) mix with although the Government wanted to separate from this “Crown Jewel” of the US intelligence services two years ago, founded sound break with a difficult transfer process: “It’s about thousands of locations in Germany, where the technique needs to be replaced.” More than three a week are not to create “Very elaborate project”.
Sound breaking underlined that not have been to a “special notice”, since it “never hard, litigable facts” had been. The Government wanted to rather not continue the existing, now-expired contract and transfer the IFMGA in the Informationsverbund Berlin-Bonn (IVBB), which acts as a service provider Deutsche Telekom.
Own Government network
The German weather service made the crypto management of the IFMGA, sound break noticed along the way. This offered itself, since this was according to technically skilled and adequately represented at many locations to be covered, he then explained to heise online. The Telecom is responsible for the encryption in the career.
The computer scientist regretted that there was still no “centralized IT control” to the Federal Government which would significantly facilitate the exchange of a provider. At least its own Government network with few transitions in the normal Internet was available but, which are pretty easy to keep in sight. At the “purchasers in the U.S.” readiness had increased no later than with the “no-spy clause”, “for safety-critical applications to take advantage of the possibilities of public procurement law”, so a preference to national providers and to defend it against the Commission. Generally, the new requirements could not meet some foreign service providers.
