Zoom Video Communications announced today the global availability of post-quantum end-to-end encryption (E2EE) for Zoom Meetings.

While current encryption standards are robust, the advent of quantum computing could render them obsolete. Post-quantum encryption uses advanced algorithms designed to withstand attacks from these powerful machines, ensuring data remains secure even as technology advances.

Zoom’s post-quantum E2EE is currently available for Zoom Meetings, with plans to extend the feature to Zoom Phone and Zoom Rooms shortly. This move reinforces Zoom’s commitment to providing cutting-edge security for its users.

“When users enable E2EE for their meetings, Zoom’s system is designed to provide only the participants with access to the encryption keys that are used to encrypt the meeting; this is the behavior for both post-quantum E2EE and standard E2EE,” reads Zoom’s announcement.

“Because Zoom’s servers do not have the necessary decryption key, encrypted data relayed through Zoom’s servers is indecipherable.”
