An 80 bit key, ooh I feel SO secure. And key escrow entrusted to the same government that later developed FISA courts, and filed applications there based on known false information, while omitting valid exculpatory information.
I remember it well.

I am unable to go into details because of a NDA I signed just over 10 years ago, but back then real-time (100mHz - 100Hz) 64-bit key search was within (relatively) easy reach of a (relatively) small commercial organization.

If one assumes Moore's law with a doubling period of 2 years, the ~1Hz capabilities of a similar organization is now 70-72 bits (assuming 5 bits from ML and another 1-3 from an organization willing to try somewhat harder). 80-bit search at 1mHz seems plausible to me for the likes of them.

People with real resources to hand, TLA's mostly, can undoubtedly do much better. They will not be able to read everything but they are very likely to be able to read everything of suffiicient interest.

Privacy activists in EU file complaints over iPhone tracking
Quote:
BERLIN (AP) — European privacy activists have filed complaints against Apple over its use of software to track the behavior of iPhone users.

The Vienna-based group NOYB - short for "none of your business" - said Monday that it has asked data protection authorities in Germany and Spain to examine the legality of Apple's tracking codes.
<snip>
NOYB says the iOS operating system creates unique codes for each iPhone that allow Apple and other third parties to "identify users across applications and even connect online and mobile behaviour."

The group argues that this amounts to tracking without users' knowledge or consent, a practice that is banned under the European Union's electronic privacy rules.
<snip>
NOYB, founded by privacy activist and lawyer Max Schrems, has filed numerous cases against major tech companies including one against Facebook that recently led the European Union's top court to strike down an agreement that allows companies to transfer data to the United States over snooping concerns.
