ENCRYPT Act: Legislation Prohibiting Manufacturers From Weakening Security For Government Access - Being Libertarian
"... it seems many law enforcement officials have the same backward and archaic mentality, that by weakening security for everyone, even to be at the mercy of private individuals with malicious intent, somehow is a greater good for all of society. It would be great to see the ENCRYPT Act pass so we can ensure all people in the United States, as well as any individuals using software or hardware from US companies, can ensure they are not using an intentionally weakened device because some law enforcement agency thinks everyone should have weaker security," writes Being Libertarian chief geek Alon Ganon.
