Discovered Flaw leaves Back Door with Cell Phone Calls

Recently The Washington Post printed an article written By Craig Timberg

“German researchers discover a flaw that could let anyone listen to your cell calls.”

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/12/18/german-researchers-discover-a-flaw-that-could-let-anyone-listen-to-your-cell-calls-and-read-your-texts/

I have a few thoughts on the bowing towards the limitations of SS7 when we have the technology and means to stops the breaches in their tracks…Super Encryption is the answer. The cell phone calls need to be encrypted once with the carrier and once with patented encryption

The article reads “ For calls or texts transmitted using strong encryption, such as is commonly used for advanced 3G connections, hackers could request through SS7 that each caller’s carrier release a temporary encryption key to unlock the communication after it has been recorded:”

The ‘temporary’ key will only reveal the first encrypted layer. The Patented encryption layer will still be left leaving useless bits and bytes. The reality is the technology already exists to leave this “new found” security flaw yesterday’s news. With the dizzying amount of breaches, the country has started to accept that breaches are the price we pay for the speed of advanced technological society. But, it simply isn’t true. We have the ability now; we simply have to apply it.
