In cryptography, encryption is the process of encoding messages or information in such a way that only authorized parties can read it. Encryption does not of itself prevent interception, but denies the message content to the interceptor. In an encryption scheme, the intended communication information or message, referred to as plaintext, is encrypted using an encryption algorithm, generating ciphertext that can only be read if decrypted. For technical reasons, an encryption scheme usually uses a pseudo-random encryption key generated by an algorithm. It is in principle possible to decrypt the message without possessing the key, but, for a well-designed encryption scheme, large computational resources and skill are required. An authorized recipient can easily decrypt the message with the key provided by the originator to recipients, but not to unauthorized interceptors.

Calling government proposals to seek decryption of communications a "backdoor" is a cartoon-like assumption, according to Secretary of the Department of Home Affairs Michael Pezzullo.
Cisco's 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report reveals that attackers are increasingly using encryption to help evade detection.
Sofacy, also known as APT28, Fancy Bear, and Tsar Team, is a highly active and prolific APT.

From their high volume 0day deployment to their innovative and broad malware set, Sofacy is one of the top groups that we monitor, report, and protect against. 2017 was not any different in this regard.
