End-to-End Encryption10 Sep 2020
Business Cryptography Disruption
E2E encryption possibly fits into the model for disruptive technology:
- It’s disproportionately valued by a small set of people.
- Established companies are unable to effectively deploy it because they either consider plaintext data valuable, or they’ve built a product which is technically unable to be offered in an end-to-end encrypted fashion.
However, it’s not clear that sufficiently developed E2E encryption is able to provide the same service better than an unencrypted alternative would be able to.
