The FSB ordered to provide encryption keys on magnetic media

The document is published on the official Internet portal of legal information. It indicates that the organizers of information dissemination in the Internet must provide information for decoding (called encryption keys) to the Organizational-analytical Department of the Scientific-technical service, the FSB. This must be done on magnetic media by mail or in the form of an electronic communication by e-mail.

In addition, the authorized unit may be arranged to access information for decoding.

The document also stated that the transfer of information for decoding is carried out on the basis of a request of the Commissioner of the division, signed by his supervisor.

Earlier, the FSB pointed out that the requirement of obligatory certification of the means of encryption on the Internet will relate only to the facilities used for the transmission of state secrets.
