We've seen some improvements, and that's not nothing. But not the revolutionary rework it needs. Telegram still seems to encourage dangerous cloud messaging instead of secret chats. Experts ask "why?" And the answer is "convenience." That's unsafe.

@telegram Should Telegram shut one Iranian channel down to preserve access to all the others? Most would say "of course." It's more important to keep that tether to their ecosystem alive, right? They're in something close to a monopoly position, where the fallback for many is unsafe SMS.

@ericgeller @MalwareJake That'd be a better argument if, like explosives, digital weapons (exploits) were one-time use. A better analogue here are biological weapons, with their endless reproducibility. There, we would rightly ask if gov should have risked producing/storing them at all, given this risk.

@petersterne The only way I can see the initial ceremony having been compromised is by a bad build distributed to all participants. But this is hard to pull off in the first place, and participants kept copies of the build on write-once media, providing for an audit trail.

@petersterne Due to the design of the ceremony, the chance of every single participant (many known, respected, publicly identified figures) in the ceremony being compromised (which is the only way to cause harm) is close to zero. An undetected flaw in the novel cryptography is more realistic.

@lorenzoFB @tqbf Provider-enabled disclosure is *always* a more realistic threat than "NSA's overscheduled hacker unit is running a live op to get my personal mail spool," because the cheapest, laziest access mechanism is the most likely to be used. But neither is the primary risk for most folks.

@lorenzoFB Yes. @tqbf's take is magical thinking, presuming if NSA *has the authority* to try and hack something, they already have (and have no concerns on exfil volume, resourcing, etc). He's no dummy (he was right on DNSSEC; I was wrong), but I feel misses the forest for the trees here.

@lorenzoFB Respectfully, misses the point. Requiring NSA to have a ROC operator hack an email provider and task the implant to specially exfiltrate your inbox back to the mother ship is enormously less likely than a persona analyst going "hm, my guy uses Gmail. Let me get my Word template."

@lorenzoFB Both sides here are a bit confused. Google is a PRISM partner: NSA has 100% guaranteed, provider-enabled access to the inbox of any non-USP they want, so if your concern is NSA, hard to think of a worse choice. For USPs, FBI can get the same, but w warrant. TAO irrelevant here.
