Zoom will now protect ‘Zoom Meetings’ from advanced hacking, here’s how | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

Zoom Video Communications has announced that its post-quantum end-to-end encryption (E2EE) is now globally available for Zoom Workplace, specifically Zoom Meetings, that will protect the platform from advanced hackings and cyberattacks originating from quantum computers.

The company also announced that the solution will be available for Zoom Phone and Zoom Rooms soon, and the launch makes Zoom the first unified communications as a service, or UCaaS, company to offer a post-quantum E2EE solution for video conferencing.

“As adversarial threats become more sophisticated, so does the need to safeguard user data. In certain circumstances, attackers may have the ability to capture encrypted network traffic now, with the intent to decrypt it later when quantum computers become more advanced,” the company said.

The post-quantum end-to-end encryption is essentially a solution to withstand these potential future threats. Zoom launched end-to-end encryption for Zoom Meetings in 2020 and Zoom Phone in 2022, and it has now upgraded the algorithms.

“With the launch of post-quantum E2EE, we are doubling down on security and providing leading-edge features for users to help protect their data. At Zoom, we continuously adapt as the security threat landscape evolves, with the goal of keeping our users protected,” said Michael Adams, chief information security officer at Zoom.

How post-quantum E2E encryption works
When users enable E2EE for their meetings, Zoom’s system is designed to provide only the participants with access to the encryption keys that are used to encrypt the meeting – this is the behaviour for both post-quantum E2EE and standard E2EE.

Since Zoom’s servers do not have the necessary decryption key, encrypted data relayed through Zoom’s servers is indecipherable.

Apple brings post-quantum E2EE for iMessage
Earlier this year,Apple brought quantum-proof encryption for iMessage. Apple said that the protection is the strongest offered by any messaging system and prevents hackers from being able to read stolen messages.
