Brazil Planning To Create Secure Email Service To Prevent Snooping By Foreign Governments

Not happy about NSA revelations


Brazil has confirmed plans to create a secure email service, following revelations of cyber-surveillance techniques used by the US and UK.

President Dilma Rousseff posted a series of tweets over the weekend, saying the move was required to "prevent possible espionage".

She added the country's Federal Data Processing Service (Serpro) would be charged with developing the system.

One expert said the tech involved was well established but had limitations.
