Kotaljenje po hribu navzdol

The great forest

Je zasebnost že moderna?

V zadnjih nekaj tednih se je na področju komunikacijske zasebnosti zgodil manjši tsunami, ki je v nekem trenutku večje ponudnike klepetalnih mobilnih aplikacij navdušil nad enkripcijo komunikacij.

WhatsApp in Viber sta začela ponujati enkriptirano komunikacijo ter se tako pridružila že kar pisani družbi programov, ki to že počnejo, Opera pa je VPN dostop (sicer zaenkrat le testno) vgradila v svoj brskalnik.

Čeprav enkripcija sama po sebi niti ni taka novost, pa je zagotovo vredno omembe, da sta se za to odločila dva mainstream proizvajalca, ki sta tako enkripcijo pripeljala do ljudi, ki se jim dosedaj še sanjalo ni o tem.

Tako lahko upamo, da so to koraki v smer, ki jo bodo posnemali tudi drugi akterji v industriji. Zato, ker je to prav in zato, ker se spodobi.
