The "sustained Skype collection" is a further step taken by the authority in the arms race between intelligence agencies seeking to deny users of their privacy and those wanting to ensure they are protected.

Tor, otherwise known as The Onion Router, is free and open source software that allows users to surf the web through a network of more than 6,000 linked volunteer computers.

The software automatically encrypts data in a way that ensures that no single computer in the network has all of a user's information.

For the NSA, encrypted communication -- or what all other Internet users would call secure communication -- is "a threat".

In one internal training document viewed by SPIEGEL, an NSA employee asks: "Did you know that ubiquitous encryption on the Internet is a major threat to NSA's ability to prosecute digital-network intelligence (DNI) traffic or defeat adversary malware?

Chancellor Angela Merkel and her cabinet now communicate using phones incorporating strong encryption.

The government has also encouraged members of the German public to take steps to protect their own communication.

"Properly implemented strong crypto systems are one of the few things that you can rely on," Snowden said in June 2013, after fleeing to Hong Kong.

The digitization of society in the past several decades has been accompanied by the broad deployment of cryptography, which is no longer the exclusive realm of secret agents.

Whether a person is conducting online banking, Internet shopping or making a phone call, almost every Internet connection today is encrypted in some way.

The entire realm of cloud computing -- that is of outsourcing computing tasks to data centers somewhere else, possibly even on the other side of the globe -- relies heavily on cryptographic security systems.

One example is the encryption featured in Skype, a program used by some 300 million users to conduct Internet video chat that is touted as secure. "Sustained Skype collection began in Feb 2011," reads a National Security Agency (NSA) training document from the archive of whistleblower Edward Snowden.
