  • A signature status for encryption is displayed in the chat info of end-to-end encrypted chats.
  • The signature status is an additional security information and should inform the user about a possible attack on the end-to-end encryption of the chat.
  • The following statuses can be displayed:
    • Signature valid (Green): The signature is present and valid
    • No signature present (Yellow): No signature is present/the access key was sent without a signature
    • Invalid signature (Red): The access key was sent with a signature that does not match the inviting user's current private key
  • Complex man-in-the-middle attacks on end-to-end encryption should be visible via this information.
