Title: David Cameron's proposed encryption ban would 'destroy the internet'
Post by: Jay9 on 06 July 2015, 20:03:58

A highly respected cryptographer and security expert is warning that David Cameron's proposed ban on strong encryption threatens to "destroy the internet."

Last week, the British Prime Minister told Parliament that he wants to "ensure that terrorists do not have a safe space in which to communicate."

Strong encryption refers to the act of scrambling data in such a way that it cannot be understood by anyone without the correct key or password even law enforcement with a warrant, or the software manufacturer itself. It's used in some of the most popular tech products in the world, including the iPhone, WhatsApp messenger, and Facebook.
