yeah it also sends all the data to United States Department of Homeland Security through the program FedRAMP. You can look this up on wikipedia.

From a technical perspective, there is no technology that I know of that allows for fully end to end encrypted group calls. Even has to decrypt the streams on its server, although it encrypts it over the network.

There's a technological gap that remains to be filled. What's interesting is that despite having this being an obvious military advantage, not a peep about developing this. It appears that there are parties in military R&D who have probably a decent implementation at least, but who are bound by NDAs or something else which is preventing them from selling this in the private sector.

US Military & the capitalists want us to communicate with shitty gaps in our encryption. It is layered surveillance, with redundant failsafes-- they hack your operating system, the router's embedded OS, the proprietary modem your ISP "generously" gave you, compromised closed-source software throughout your desktop environment, your phone entirely, plus they give you only their worst most broken protocols to communicate face to face in with more than 2 people at a time, and tell you its "encrypted" so they can make more money off you.

This is how they trap, trace, and kill potential insurgents. You make gathering in public illegal, close all social gathering points, make it illegal to be within 6 feet of somebody and then force everyone onto perhaps the worst digital application for online organizing that has ever been conceived of. Everyone else will languish in isolation, alienation and media saturation heightened beyond anything even fathomable for most first world people a month ago.

"Zoom" indeed. Real accelerationist hours. You almost have to be impressed at how well the state has taken advantage of the crisis.
