In 2013, computer professional and former CIA employee Edward Snowden made headlines after leaking classified information from the U.S. National Security Agency. He revealed how the government actually monitors and uses peoples personal data.

He was eventually charged for Espionage Act violation and government property theft but shortly thereafter, he flew to Russia and continues to live in the country to this day in an undisclosed location.

Recently, the whistleblower has attracted a lot of media attention anew with another claim aliens may be trying to contact Earth right now.

On a podcast guesting, Edward Snowden spoke about the possibilities of extraterrestrial communications.

As a guest for Neil deGrasse Tysons StarTalk podcast, Snowden boldly proclaimed that encryption is making it difficult to receive clear extraterrestrial communication.

Snowden explained:

If you look at encrypted communication, if they are properly encrypted, there is no real way to tell that they are encrypted. You cant distinguish a properly encrypted communication from random behavior.

Snowden pointed out that encryption is making such communications indistinguishable.

He also said:

If you have an alien civilization trying to listen for other civilizations, or our civilization trying to listen for aliens, theres only one small period in the development of their society when all of their communication will be sent via the most primitive and most unprotected means.

So when we think about everything that were hearing through our satellites or everything that theyre hearing from our civilization (if there are indeed aliens out there), all of their communications are encrypted by default. So what we are hearing, thats actually an alien television show or a phone call [which] is indistinguishable to us from cosmic microwave background radiation.

We may be totally oblivious about it but aliens may already be contacting us.

If his theories are true, it is indeed possible that aliens have been contacting us and were not even remotely aware about it.
