Separately, researchers at the University of Toronto also found  Zoom’s encryption used keys issued via servers in China, even when call participants were outside of China.

They wrote: “During a test of a Zoom meeting with two users, one in the United States and one in Canada, we found that the AES-128 key for conference encryption and decryption was sent to one of the participants over TLS from a Zoom server apparently located in Beijing, 52.81.151.250.”


 

(From the Hill)

The Senate Sergeant at Arms (SAA) has sent a memo to senators this week warning them against using the video conferencing service Zoom for work calls, citing security concerns, the Financial Times reported.

The memo did not specifically require senators to stop using the platform, which has been plagued by privacy and security problems over the past two weeks but recommended using alternative video conferencing services.
