Tech Giants Continue to Protest against Weakening Encryption

Tech Giants Continue to Protest against Weakening Encryption

62 tech companies, including Google, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Samsung and Twitter, have joined to reject calls for weakening encryption. The companies insist that it could be exploited by the “bad guys”.


Tim Cook was first to claim that “any backdoor is a backdoor for everyone”. Then the Information Technology Industry Council (ITIC), representing 62 tech firms all over the world, confirmed his point of view, saying that encryption is a security tool the companies rely on everyday to stop criminals and preserve security and safety.

Encryption has long become the bedrock of the worldwide web, used by transmissions that need to be secure. Debate over this kind of security has erupted after the terrorist attacks on Paris. In the meantime, the ITIC reiterated that weakening security in order to advance security makes no sense. Sounds fair enough, doesn’t it?

So, what is the problem with encryption? End-to-end encrypted communications mean that only the sender and receiver are technically able to view the contents of the message, not the government or any other agency. Some believe that this puts intelligence services at a disadvantage, and call for creating backdoors – holes in the encryption security software ¬¬– through which security services could view all communications. Why are tech firms against this suggestion? Because this move would actually create vulnerabilities to be exploited by the “bad guys”, who are able to cause serious physical and financial harm to the society and economy.

The UK Prime Minister even suggested that encrypted messaging apps should be banned. Ironically enough, banning would only impact the lawful, because it will be very hard to stop criminals from using encrypting software.

analogkid6103 avatarThis is a no lose/no win though.
If they dont put em in good all stay secure.
And if they do put them in well all are unsecure
Us and them. Both. Now who has more to hide. Them or us?
