Encryption, wiretaps and the Feds: THE TRUTH


The option then

So, with more and more governments looking to enable these kind of snooper's charter, it is in our best interests to ensure that our data is protected personally, without having to rely on good intentions by other organisations or governments.

VPN's, encryption, TOR etc - the more people care about their data, the more they will turn to the options available for them.

In the UK, that will essentially mean a warrant is needed to access your encrypted data, which I'm fine with - if the police etc can convince a judge of the need to access my data, i'll provide the keys - otherwise i'll be doing whatever I need to, to ensure that my data is obfuscated.
