IM Telegram Replay Attack - Android
One interesting comment noted in a paragraph in the conclusion reveals the influences foreign policy subjects itself on software developers regarding censorship "We have scrutinized the code base of the official application for Android and concluded that the state of the application is at serious odds with the documentation. This concerns mainly the undocumented obfuscation method Telegram uses. The MTProto traffic is encrypted one more time with the key and IV prepended to the data. This has no effect on the data security and is easily debunked by the deobfuscation program we have implemented. When the Telegram team was confronted with these claims, they noted the method is used to circumvent some of the less sophisticated methods of censorship in certain countries."
