Encryption; Friend of Freedom, Guardian of Privacy

However, the ensuing debate over encryption has just begun. High profile criminal and national security issues serve to shed light on an issue which is pervasive throughout…

Forget iPhone encryption, the FBI can’t legally touch the software ISIS uses

The FBI insists that encrypted products like the iPhone and encrypted online services will put people in harm’s way, especially in light of the ISIS-connected San Bernardino shooting late last year. That’s why the Bureau has been arguing for encryption backdoors that would be available to law enforcement agencies, and why it looked to coerce Apple to add a backdoor to iOS.

Mark Zuckerberg Defends Apple’s Stance On Encryption

The real battle for data encryption on our mobile devices has heated up considerably over the past few weeks and is looking to come to a boil relatively soon as tech companies and industry moguls alike join Apple in its defense of encryption.

Several officials in the communications and IT Ministry that ET spoke to admitted that the timing of the release of the draft policy – just before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s US visit — couldn’t have been worse, prompting…
