US Senate Encryption bill


Recommended Posts

I just read the "leaked" draft of the senate encryption bill. It looks awful and contradictory in addition to the adjectives the wired article gave it. My senator's office is across the street from where I work. So I plan on stopping by over lunch on Monday to irritate her staff, by listing off the ways that that bill could break the internet while failing to solve the problems it is aimed at fixing.

draft here https://www.scribd.com/doc/307378123/Burr-Encryption-Bill-Discussion-Draft

Anyway, I'm a bit annoyed right now that someone thought what they have so far was worth writing down.

The feds are so worried about not being able to intercept our traffic that they feel they have to restrict our ability to secure OUR OWN data. In the end all they are going to do i make their citizens as a whole vulnerable to other people intercepting our data and taking advantage of our inability to protect ourselves. They need to realize that people arent just encrypting data to hide it from the prying eyes of OUR OWN government, but to protect it from the VAST threat from other criminals who would love nothing more than to see the government put up in the position where we can no longer keep our data safe.
