Risky Business #581 -- Chinese telcos under fire in USA, spy firms pitch COVID-19 surveillance

On this week’s show Patrick and Adam discuss the week’s security news, including:

Spy companies pitch ridiculously invasive approaches to contact tracing

NSO Group busted running c2 boxes in USA according to WhatsApp lawsuit

Australian government releases contact tracing app, no idea if it works

Chinese telcos to get boot from USA

Much, much more

This week’s show is brought to you by Senetas. This week’s sponsor interview is with listener favourite, Senetas CTO Julian Fay. He’ll be along in this week’s show to talk about an open source project Senetas has put together – oqs-engine.

It’s an OpenSSL engine plugin you can go grab right now if you want to play around with Open Quantum Safe encryption algorithms. Senetas didn’t write the algorithms, but they have squeezed them into this handy OpenSSL engine plugin package. Julian drops in to tell us all about that.
