against the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIP) 2000, which
passed into law on October 24th of this year. The Regulation of
Investigatory Powers (RIP) Act outlines the extended reach of the UK

users when securing their communica tions."

secure and private communications over the Internet and has been
