Skype Can Foil NSA Wiretappers



If you're worried about the Feds snooping on your phone calls, there may be an easy solution: Use Skype VoIP software. Top security expert Bruce Schneier says that Skype encryption can foil the NSA wiretappers.

Schneier, chief technology officer at Counterpane Internet Security, told the Associated Press that Skype's 256-bit encryption keys are powerful enough to stymie the NSA's massive wiretapping program.

Don't be fooled by this ploy. Skype is probably the easiest one to crack, and they want you to use it.

I'm not going to speculate on the NSA's capability to quickly crack 256 bit encryption, but, unless it has a backdoor for their use or a major flaw, an encrypted system IS harder to monitor than a regular, insecure telephone call. That doesn't necessarily mean it's secure.
