Signal loses anti-censorship tool as Amazon blocks domain fronting

Amazon has sent Open Whisper Systems an email threatening to terminate its CloudFront services if it continues using the Amazon URL souq.com as a “domain front”.

Open Whisper Systems developed the security system Signal Protocol, used by WhatsApp to offer end-to-end encryption on the platform.

It also has its own secure messaging app called Signal.

The company used domain fronting through the Google App Engine for the past year and a half.
