New Attacks on HTTPS Traffic Reveal Plenty About Your Web Surfing
One thing that’s been made abundantly clear by mathematicians and cryptographers alike is that despite the NSA’s dragnet surveillance of phone calls and Internet traffic, the spy agency has not been able to crack the math holding up encryption technology.
Those who wish to spy and steal on the Internet continuously hit a wall when it comes to crypto algorithms, leaving no alternative but to find a way to subvert the technology in order to reach their targets.
In response, security and privacy experts, as well as cryptographers, have urged companies to turn HTTPS on by default for web-based services such as email and social networking. A group of researchers from UC Berkeley, however this week published a paper, that explains new attacks that aid in the analysis of encrypted traffic to learn personal details about the user, right down to possible health issues, financial affairs and even sexual orientation.
