Zoom Buys Keybase To Improve Security

Zoom just confirmed it would buy identity management firm Keybase in a powerful security move that could significantly boost the fortunes of the video conferencing platform. Zoom CEO Eric Yuan said in a blog that Zoom would use Keybase to help build end-to-end encryption “that can reach current Zoom scalability.”

And it seems that this integral security feature could arrive pretty soon. “In the near future,” Zoom says will offer end-to-end encryption to all its paying customers. This will of course include governments who could be having sensitive meetings that need to be protected in this way.

But it will affect functionality—Yuan outlined that end-to-end encrypted meetings “will not support phone bridges, cloud recording, or non-Zoom conference room systems.”
