Comments on news posted 2013-05-08 10:02:03: As I've been discussing, law enforcement and intelligence agencies are making a strong new push to mandate backdoors in e-mail, cloud storage services, social networking websites and other encrypted services to make real-time wiretapping easier. ..

Obama was against it before he was for it.

And then the lobbyists who will profit off installation and upkeep of the back doors paid off the democratic party and he had to sing a different tune.

I could be wrong and the government could honestly just want more spying. But this day in age I am conditioned to first search for the smell of cash.

Re: Please Help me to Understand

If the customer did not create the keys, then it must be assumed that the encryption keys are compromised.

That's the way the system is supposed to work: warrants/court orders.

Right, like the way the government used warrants/court orders in the warrantless wiretapping scandal?

Laws no longer mean anything to the US government. They're just a way to force their will on others.

The Constitution mentions no "privileged class".

What does the government's toilet paper have to do with anything?

This is like paying extra to have locks on your doors that the government can open with a master key, it's not even close to how the "system is supposed to work"

This is like the TSA approved luggage locks. I guess they want the Internet to be locked the same way. Yeeesh!

Re: Please Help me to Understand

Most encryption for social media sites is transport encryption. It is asymmetric encryption such as TLS aka. SSL/https. The data is fed to the application on the backend in clear text, a backdoor could allow a copy of the clear data sent to the government as well as the real destination, i.e. the application server. It takes alot more computing power and money to wiretap data as a man in the middle.

Re: Fines =Tax

Agreed. Then acts heroic about protecting our rights on one tiny little thing they don't really enforce anyway.
