Default French build new encryption based messaging

Saying "non" to nasty foreign roast beef-eating encryption with "superior" french tech

The French government is building an encrypted messenger service to ease fears that foreign entities could spy on private conversations between top officials.

The digital ministry said that none of the world’s major encrypted messaging apps, including Facebook’s WhatsApp and Telegram, are based in France, raising the risk of data breaches at servers outside the country.

More than 20 officials and top civil servants are testing the new app which a state-employed developer has designed, a ministry spokeswoman said, with the aim that its use will become mandatory for the whole government by the summer.

“We need to find a way to have an encrypted messaging service that is not encrypted by the United States or Russia. You start thinking about the potential breaches that could happen, as we saw with Facebook, so we should take the lead.”
