A team of researchers have developed a new protocol that would improve upon end-to-end encryption to protect against the interference of messages by attackers. This protocol forces evidence to be left behind in the event that communications between a sender and a recipient are read or tampered with by an attacker. Users are also alerted when such interference by attackers is detected. This article further discusses the insufficiency of current end-to-end encryption services, the approach used by these current encryption services, how attackers can intercept messages, and Detecting Endpoint Compromise in Messaging (DECIM) as a solution.
