Putins Paranoia Manifests as SORM

The following examines the surveillance mechanism embodied by Russia's System for Operative Investigative Activities (SORM), highlighting its capabilities, functions, societal impacts, and potential role in supporting offensive cyber operations. SORM, operational since the mid-1990s and continually evolving, is a sophisticated state tool for intercepting telecommunications and internet traffic, performing deep packet inspection, real-time monitoring, and storing massive amounts of data. Legal mandates require internet service providers (ISPs) and telecommunications companies to install hardware that routes all customer data through FSB-controlled monitoring points, raising significant privacy concerns and enabling unchecked state surveillance.
