ISIS has threatened to attack the United States and continue its reign of terror elsewhere in the world, so an argument could be made that the high-tech industry would serve the greater good by agreeing to weaken encryption.
“No, it should not,” maintained security expert Sorin Mustaca.
“There has to always be somebody who controls those that control everyone else. The day when security companies give in to those demands is the day there’s no privacy for everyone,” he told TechNewsWorld.
Additional comments not in the article:
Weakening encryption is not helping fighting terrorism. There is too much data out there and even if everything would be plain text they would still not be able to detect discussions about a planned attack.
It is like searching an exotic fish in an ocean.
The usual fish is plain text, the data you are looking is the exotic colored fish.
The fact that the exotic fish is hiding (data is encrypted) doesn’t make much of difference, isn’t it?
