Steven Murdoch is a researcher at University College London and this week published a detailed technical analysis of the MIKEY-SAKKE protocol that is implemented in the U.K.’s Secure Chorus standard for voice encryption. Secure Chorus is set up for key escrow by design, a fact that Murdoch explains in his analysis. In this podcast, Dennis Fisher and Murdoch discuss why the U.K. implemented MIKEY-SAKKE rather than another protocol, what the security and privacy implications are, and whether the standard will be used in broader applications.
