Google encrypted Gmail from intelligence services
According to Google in its official blog, starting March 20, it expands the encryption of email traffic - the Gmail service, regardless of the location of the user, will always use a secure connection via HTTPS when checking and sending correspondence. At the same time, it will not make any difference from which device you log in - from a computer, phone or tablet.
As noted, HTTPS has become the standard for Gmail since 2010, but previously users could turn off encryption to speed up work, now they will not have such an opportunity.
But most importantly, now all e-mail messages will be encrypted when exchanging traffic between data centers. As it turned out, cryptographic protection of channels is the most vulnerable place, since such an exchange of information is either not encoded at all or is minimally protected.
So, for example, from the publication of the Washington Post, citing documents by Edward Snowden and other competent experts, it follows that the US National Security Agency monitored the communication channels between the Google data centers and Yahoo! directly through fiber optic cables.
GoogleвЂ™s efforts are delicately called вЂњtop priority after last summerвЂ™s revelations.вЂќ The company also notes that they have introduced many security features that allow you to avoid intercepting user correspondence while writing, sending, or checking.
In 2013, the Gmail mail service was available 99.978% of the time, which, on average, is less than two hours of downtime throughout the year.
