“Back door” Encryption Discussion Reignited after Paris

“Back door” Encryption Discussion Reignited after Paris

Following the tragedy in Paris, officials on both sides of the Atlantic have renewed a debate on whether or not to allow government agencies the so-called “back-door” access to the encryption used to secure communications and financial and personal medical data.


Both American and European officials quickly indicted technology for the attacks (although they have yet to show how technology contributed, if it did at all). For example, the head of the New York police department claimed that their ability to monitor locals had been hampered by encryption.

In the meantime, privacy advocates have called the renewed debate over encryption back doors “inexcusably cynical”. They also claimed that criminals and terrorists could use back door access.

Apparently, the debate over encryption was reignited by misreporting on the nature of the PlayStation console and an anonymous quote in press that the attackers had used encrypted devices. Meanwhile, law enforcement and intelligence services are sounding the alarm about a host of apps, including Telegram and WhatsApp, which adopted end-to-end encryption early in 2015.

Earlier in November, FBI general counsel admitted that the Bureau had given up on encryption back doors, saying that a backdoor “key” that only worked for the “good guys” is impossible to invent. Therefore, it doesn’t make sense to have the discussion when it would make the world more vulnerable when those systems are subverted.

On the other hand, Apple provides highly encrypted communications, notably iMessage, and without apology, comparing encryption backdoors to leaving a key under the doormat, where it can be found by a burglar and the cops with equal success.

kbsoftware avatarWell seems the Paris attack is very convenient and it happened at a pretty good time for government agencies to start up again on encryption back doors.

analogkid6103 avatarAnything made or created can be reversed or bypassed or corrupted. So if they start it going then their own back doors become at risk. But everybody is understandably excited and upset by recent events so they have to place a blame on someone or something or they wont sleep right. Lets see what happens before we have to worry. I even was listening to a news outlet speculating on the idea of trying to cut a deal with anonymous to continue and escalate their private conflict against ISIS. Politics and fear make for strange bedfellows.

johnmc963 avatarLike the previous poster said. How convenient that the terrible attacks in Paris are being used as an excuse to take more of our rights away. The government wants access to everything and no privacy allowed. It wont be abused right? Monitoring all of our emails/texts/phone calls is not enough? The US is NOT the land of the free and home of the brave and free of government abuse . scary

trialNerror avatarThis is odd to say, but Apple is right.
