Tech Giants Urge the President to Support Encryption

A number of tech firms, including Apple and Google, along with noted cryptologists, have signed a letter to the US president administration, where they urge the American government to preserve strong encryption despite the increasing pressure from law enforcement and surveillance agencies.

In the letter, the tech firms insist that strong encryption underlies the modern information economy’s security. Therefore, the government is expected to fully support efforts to establish encryption standards rather than make commercial software vulnerable. 3 members of Obama’s 5-person review group set up to reassess technology policy following Snowden’s leaks also signed the letter. One of them compared it to a failed attempt to institute back doors in the phone network, saying that if it wasn’t pulled off at the end of the cold war, it won’t be now either.

The problem is that law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, opposed the ubiquitous encryption and criticized the decision of Apple and Google to turn on encryption by default. Indeed, when Apple announced iOS 8, it added automated encryption of the data stored on many iPhones and other Apple devices. Later, Google also announced plans to do the same with its Android OS. In other words, from now on, the companies themselves won’t be able to unlock the devices to reveal content stored within.

The FBI complains that the tech giants don’t want to help them with investigations, pointing out that, for instance, Apple users can back up and store much of their information in “the cloud”, where the FBI can still access it. The problem for the FBI is that not all of the stored data is uploaded to the cloud, thus forming the potential to create a black hole for law enforcement.

These complaints were met by many, including the British prime minister, David Cameron, with the suggestion that the tech giants could build backdoors in to their encryption, i.e. intentionally create special weaknesses to allow law enforcement and surveillance agencies to obtain access to otherwise secure connections. Unfortunately, the security industry believes that such backdoors are technologically infeasible. For instance, the Electronic Frontier Foundation argued that due to the nature of modern encryption, it is impossible to put in a backdoor or magic key for law enforcement that the abusers won’t also be able to use.

analogkid6103 avatarThe officials are crying cause they will have to work hard to spy on us. And google and apple are the spokesmen for privacy?!?
Sounds like the "cloud is just a warehouse for the true invaders of privacy if privacy even exists. Which I have doubts. lol
Its getting so close to the "thought police" I had hoped never to even imagine how it could be, now i almost cant imagine how it cant be.
And of course the majority of the sheple are ready, willing, and able to give up their freedom for "safety" ugh!
All they need to do is what they always do: nothing, the elected/owned officials/executives will take care of it all, as usual.
Maybe we deserve it.
Not meaning us who are here and active, but for the majority of sheple who will allow it. Nay, who will mandate it through their inaction.
