Encryption Working Group Annual Report from the US House of Representatives
The Encryption Working Group of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee has released its annual report.
Observation #1: Any measure that weakens encryption works against the national interest.
Observation #2: Encryption technology is a global technology that is widely and increasingly available around the world.
Observation #3: The variety of stakeholders, technologies, and other factors create different and divergent challenges with respect to encryption and the “going dark” phenomenon, and therefore there is no one-size-fits-all solution to the encryption challenge.
Observation #4: Congress should foster cooperation between the law enforcement community and technology companies.
