Während Bayern erst vergangenen Donnerstag eine Verlängerung der Ausgangsbeschränkung angekündigt hat, stellt sich deutlich eine Sehnsucht nach Normalität her. Trotz aller Notwendigkeit, die Situation in den Griff zu bekommen.
Bruce Schneier, well known cryptologist and security researcher, has a few thoughts on corona tracing apps on his blog. Spoiler: he doesn’t like the idea.
