#Pine64 is not allowed to ship their #pinephone, #pinetab or #pinebookpro to #Russia because of the device encryption of these devices. https://www.pine64.org/2020/07/15/july-updatepmos-ce-pre-orders-and-new-pinephone-version/
Make you wonder what arrangements other manufacturers have in place with Russia.
@chpietsch There seems to be missing a notice to the FSB and/or a license from the ministry of industry and trade: https://nemko.com/de/node/231, https://certificate.net/FSS-notification/Encryption-certificate, http://www.mintest-russia.com/news/russia-importing-encrypted-products-fsb-notification-for-encryption-or-notification-for-encrypted-pr/.
@tastytea Interesting that http://www.mintest-russia.com/news/russia-importing-encrypted-products-fsb-notification-for-encryption-or-notification-for-encrypted-pr/ lists *maximum* key lengths. What about encryption using longer keys? I don't get it.
@chpietsch Those devices can still get to Russia, they just need extra steps
@chpietsch damn, talk about mass surveillance
can't we already pretty safely assume that every major nation has a direct backdoor or at least a way to look into all your data on anything running one of the big commercial operating systems anyways
