Misconceptions About Forward-secrecy


Lately, there has been a lot of interest in forward-secrecy, mostly in the context of TLS/HTTPS. Some people seem to think it’s a magic bullet that will thwart all the NSA’s efforts. I am not against forward-secrecy, to the contrary, I think any encrypted communications protocol should use it, but I think it is important that people keep realistic expectations about what forward-secrecy protects them against. The worst security is security that you assume you have, but don’t actually have.
