🇩🇪 Die EU plant mit der #Chatkontrolle die anlasslose Echtzeit-Massenüberwachung deiner gesamten privaten Online-Kommunikation. Worum geht es, wie geht es weiter und wie kannst du dich wehren?



🇬🇧 With #chatcontrol, the EU wants #masssurveillance of all your private online communications in real-time. What is it about, what will happen next and what can you do?



@echo_pbreyer @OSE I read the legislation proposal. There are proposing surveillance but there is zero mention of automation and realtime processing, hence the very first part of your article is void:

“The result: Mass surveillance through fully automated real-time messaging and chat control and the end of secrecy of digital correspondence.”

They stupidly just mentioned that they will use “state-of-the-art technology” and “human review” which is dumb as we all know any NLP has False Positive.


Until NLP problem with false positives is solved, or until there's a better techno for it. Then this argument doesn't hold and cannot be used as an excuse for ignoring the threat.

@echo_pbreyer @OSE

@lefarfadet @echo_pbreyer @OSE Don't get me wrong, the threat to privacy is real and there (as my next post shows).

All I'm saying is that:

1. we should not freely and wrongly paraphrase the legislative text

2. NLP is not even industry standard but so far the best we have and I don't bet my life and privacy on it

3. unless tech-savvy and privacy-oriented people does not come up with a valid solutions, politicians will screw all we have (e.g Tutanota's court and implemented "backdoor")
