whitenoise Posted January 13, 2015 Share Posted January 13, 2015 Hey! Inspired by this article http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2015/01/uk-prime-minister-wants-backdoors-into-messaging-apps-or-hell-ban-them/ which was recently published by ars in relation to the attacks in paris I want to start a discussion about the (legal) use of encryption in the future. What do you guys think? Will rights be restricted so much that encrypted communication for everyone won't be allowed anymore? Is this a possible scenario or just some public crying of politicians? And let us not forget: encryption != encryption An encrypted communication needn't be a trusted encryption and we all know about encrypted services that have their own backdoors embedded (such as Skype).
